"Experience of the Fracture Clinic in Northants General"

About: Northampton General Hospital (Acute) / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I would just like to give a big thank you to Teresa Watkins, who works in the fracture clinic as an Orthopaedic Technician in the General Northampton.

After spending six months in hospital due to a hip replacement, my grandmother was finally released on Mon 24th July. On returning home, my mother immediately saw that the leg brace she had been using whilst in hospital had caused an ulcer. She rang the hospital urgently as my Grandmother was diabetic and this could cause a serious problem.

Teresa agreed to see my Grandmother within an hour. I must say she was very helpful and quickly fitted a new leg brace. She had an extremely caring nature towards my grandmother, which put her at ease, and filled us with confidence.

Thank you once again, Susannah x
