I have always had a satisfactory outcome whilst being treated at Derriford Hospital, as an outpatient and as an inpatient. However, I was due to have a knee replacement operation in 2008, my appointment was actually cancelled 5 times before I had surgery. On some of my appointments, I had actually been prepared for surgery, and then was told that the operation was cancelled.
However the outcome was good, I was operated on, and my surgeon did an absolutely brilliant job. Only one complaint, don't like the attitude of some of the staff on orthopaedics ward level 11.
