"very good surgical team on sports..."

About: Leicester General Hospital

What I liked

Having had several operations under the care of the sports medicine team I cannot fault the surgery and outcome of my procedures. The admission ward is always clean and tidy and the ward staff are very good.

What could be improved

As someone else mentioned the after surgery physio is not ideal as you have to walk on crutches up and down the corridoors and the stairs, i feel this would better in a purpose built enviroment within the building

Also i find the seperation of male/female patients on ward 18 (admissions) is not as good as it could be as the plastic construction which tries to divide up the ward doesn't really do it's job and you still have people half hanging out their gowns wandering along to the toilet etc and this may not be satisfactory to some patients.
