"I will slowly build up to the point where I can do 5km and 10km and I would really like to do a triathlon. Whether I have another marathon in me, I’ll just have to see.
The Horder Centre was brilliant. People were very friendly and the food was really nice. I was lucky too as I have friends who work there so a lot of faces were familiar.”
“All I can say is why did I wait so long! The McIndoe Centre was fantastic! The staff and nurses were excellent, as was the food and my room. From the moment I arrived I was looked after by a team of friendly efficient staff and I always knew what was going on and why.
Six weeks after the operation, the vision in my eye is already better than it was before the operation and should hopefully improve significantly over the next few months.”
“The Horder Centre was amazing from the minute I went in, from the level of care to the level of support. It was so clean and the staff weren’t harassed at all as you sometimes find in other hospitals. It was all great.”
“I limped through 2013, constant pain mitigated slightly by exercises and drugs. I began to think of myself as disabled. Not getting a parking place near my destination could reduce me to tears.
When I finally decided to have a hip replacement, I was in The Horder Centre for two nights, then home walking on two sticks. For me it was a miracle to be able to walk again, without pain. The expertise of my surgeon Hugh Apthorp was key as he is a genius but I am extraordinarily grateful for the care and exceptional nurses at The Horder Centre which is a beautifully designed facility. Everyone was so efficient and kind.”
