What our patients say

  • Expertise second to none. Beautifully clean. Friendly and caring staff. You would be hard pressed to fault it

  • It's a good clinic. Got here from the skatepark. We're done: They put a bandage on it, thank you.

  • Had my right knee repaired by a fantastic team. My care was first class from the start. Only done this morning 9th March home and all ok. Thank you again to the team.

  • I had a Total Knee Replacement on 2nd July 2022 and was discharged on. 5th July. The staff were kind and , in particular, the physio and nurses helped sufficiently with pain relief and moblility to enable discharge . The procedures of pre-op and admission were sympathetically and efficiently dealt with. As an NHS patient I was dealt with as though I was one of the hospital’s private patients. I count myself extremely fortunate. The medical team were of the very highest standard.

  • Can’t recommend this hospital enough. All the staff were super helpful and full of smiles. Made me feel very comfortable along side my surgeon Doctor Hewitt. His knowledge and expertise is 2nd to none. Thank you x
