After seeing tens of thousands of NHS and private patients over many decades, I feel well qualified to comment on my recent experience in hospital under the care of expert orthopaedic surgeon Mr Adam Hoad-Reddick. He, his anaesthetist, the many nurse and the physiotherapist were all excellent with that all important ‘nothing is too much trouble’ attitude. I woke up pain free; not needing any meds; lunch and a pot of tea was there in minutes (!)… and I arrived home feeling brilliant. Thank you all so very much… but hope not to see you again too soon!!!
