"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.”
“My surgeon, Sam Rajaratnam, my physiotherapist, Hannah Munn and I all worked together to ensure a swift recovery from the operation. It now means that I can undertake my wheelchair transfers with less pain and manage to mobilise over very short distances with crutches and orthotics.
From my first consultation to the moment I left, the service at The Horder Centre was first class. There is clear emphasis on genuine care, compassion, cleanliness, empathy and viewing the patient holistically."
“Mr Butler-Manuel was the first consultant I saw who had any time for me and who listened to me. I think what is different about The Horder Centre is the team spirit. Having had countless operations, the Horder Centre is, in my opinion, streets above all the private hospitals I have been in. Nothing was too much trouble. After a couple of weeks I felt my knee wasn’t bending properly and within an hour, I was seeing a doctor then a specialist then a physiotherapist.”
“My experience was absolutely marvellous but the two things that made the most impression were the care and cheerfulness of everybody, even the person who dropped off the newspaper was cheerful, and when people are like that, you can’t help but be the same.”
