"Could not wish for better treatment"

About: West Middlesex University Hospital

Anything else?

Happy customer here, with Achilles tendon healing in plaster!

I am very impressed by the speed and efficiency of all the various experts and by the coordination between them: rapid referral to A&E by my GP, quick elimination of dvt as a cause of the swelling and the discovery of a snapped Achilles tendon, an offer of surgery on the spot (which pleasantly surprised me, as I'm 77), an operation within days, and finally recovery in Richmond Ward, where everybody was pleasant and caring.

I am new to this area, having just moved from Marlow. As far as I can see, Middx knocks spots off Bucks in terms of NHS performance.
