I attend an appointment with my Mother on Monday 11th June 2018 in the rheumatology clinic . The staff nurse who did my mothers BP and weight was very kind and caring also the lovely female Doctor my mother saw was excellent her manner was kind caring and put Mum at ease She gave her a steroid injection which said she did not even feel it.( I am a staff nurse in another trust )
Very very good both Sebastian and the hospital. Sebastian is very down to earth with good confidence in his work, at the end of the consultation when he asked if I had any questions there was nothing really to ask as everything was covered. The operation went exceedingly well, Sebastian managed to complete the procedure with limited cutting of muscles. I was walking the next day (evening operation) and could go up and down stairs carefully the next day. His hospital after care was again excellent I can't really thank Sebastian and his team enough as the pain was excruciating before the operation. In fact words can't really describe my gratitude to him. Additionally, the operation and recovery was complicated by a previous spinal injury, but Sebastian was more than confident and was prepared to complete it. Well done Chris
Excellent care at the Nuffield orthopaedic hospital, all appointments in the lead up to the operation were good but there was a long wait for more routine procedures e.g. Steroid injections. The medical care during my stay in hospital was excellent , the only area that needs improving is the meals which were not appetising, and were very ' old fashioned' as a nutrionist I have a very healthy diet with lots of fresh fruit and veg and this was lacking.
A very nice friendly Hospital, all the staff are lovely, nothing is to much trouble. The only problem i find here is the parking a certain times is horrendous. You need to have someone to park the car while you go for your appointment. This is my only criticism.
I was Initially thrilled that my child had been referred here from a Local hospital (NHS) and although the referral time was quite quick - Paed O/P has some really talented consultants who obviously knew their stuff - and we felt looked after -really. The hospital was always clean and tidy. The car Park is an absolute nightmare - I mean it's REALLY bad -no spaces for patients mostly staff and when you walk out the hospital you get stalked back to the car by a trail of people mouthing silently (are you leaving?) -awful. One MAJOR MAJOR, issue is it doesn't matter how good a consultant is or how much they know their stuff - if your admin team are diabolical - I mean to the point where you drive a 5 hour round trip and they forget to tell you they cancelled your appointment or even better when they send your medical letters to a random address of a GP nowhere near where you live and talk about patient Confidentiality! and calling and getting told "don't you watch the News - don't you know how bad the NHS is?" my answer to this lady is I do now! With the greatest of respect the doctors are amazing but i just don't trust the hospital anymore and have asked to be referred to a different hospital. Oh before I forget the Ladies in the shop/cafe were always lovely!
