“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.”
“I opted to go private because I wanted to be able to choose exactly when I could have my operation and avoid waiting lists. I was hugely impressed with The Horder Centre.
I think what made it different is the fact that it specialises in orthopaedic surgery, and that level of specialism meant that everyone was very knowledgeable. The preparation beforehand gave me confidence, and the aftercare was excellent. I had physiotherapy three times a day.”
“Although I was initially surprised when I was told I needed the operation because the hip hadn’t been causing me much pain, the x-rays revealed that it was shot to pieces. I am very glad now that I had it done and can’t speak highly enough of Mr Apthorp and his team.”
“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.”
