"Hip Replacement"

About: Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Hospital

Anything else?

Had good experience in orthopedics dept(Quex Ward). Pre hospital admission -communication between staff and patient could be improved as I was given wrong information and this delayed operation . When admitted I was delighted with quality of care from clinicians to all ward staff.

Thank you for taking time to provide us feedback. I am so glad that you were happy with the care we provided on Quex ward, we are very proud of our orthopaedic team at QEQM. I will let staff know - they love to receive positive feedback.

I have noted the error we made in the pre- operative information we gave you & will feedback to our Matron who leads on this area of our service.

I hope you are recovering well from your operation.
