"the friendly caring hospital"

About: Robert Jones & Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital

Anything else?

i went for knee replacement surgery to gabowen with an open and apprehensive mind in march 2013 . a lot of hospitals have had bad press recently but from my own experiences gabowen is faultless .the staff seem to take pleasure in being proud of their hospital i was on kenyan ward which was spotlessly cleaned each day . each member of staff i came into contact with from reception to surgery was very friendly and caring the food was brilliant (too good in fact i put on a few pounds during my stay) the nursing staff showed no reaction to pressure nothing was ever too much trouble and always done in a caring way.i am now on the recovery trail and hopefully will be getting my other knee done i have no worries about coming back to this wonderful hospital . im sure nothing is perfect but i certainly saw no imperfections other hospitals that get bad press have no doubt got a lot of excellent staff but gabowen seem to have everything spot on thank you to you all especially my surgeon
