"Wonderful, go there if you can, they are the best."

About: University Hospital Of Hartlepool

What I liked

I have just had a total hip replacement and wanted to thank everyone who dealt with me, all of whom were absolutely wonderful. Particular mention for the great people on Ward 4. I cannot speak highly enough of this hospital, the way it appears to be run, and of the motivation and caring attitude of the staff. Super people, working long hours with great cheerfulness and skill.

What could be improved

Possibly the food, but no-one's appetite is that good post-op. I am on a low fat diet due to high cholesterol and did not find many low fat choices. However, once again, food was presented with care and the people serving it were brilliant.

Anything else?

Just a heartfelt thank you.
