“All the staff at The Horder Centre were so helpful. It was great that someone actually took notice and realised what a negative impact the bunions were having on me. The operation has given me a new lease of life. In addition to walking again, I am now cycling too."
"After I broke my leg, I had one leg half an inch shorter than the other so always had to wear orthotics. Now for the first time, this isn’t the case. At the Horder I was blessed with a top surgeon, Hugh Apthorp, and the quality of nursing was excellent. There were real elements of old fashioned nursing care. The food was excellent and everything was of a much higher standard than I expected.
Walking has always been such an important part of my life and I now feel that I can plan ahead for some of the experiences that I was beginning to fear would elude me before I had my hip replacement.”
“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.”
“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.”
