NHS patient at Sarum Road Hospital

I had a left hip replacement on the 5th June 2023 with Mr Hartwright and his team. I was treated with the utmost care and attention from the very first consultation. He took great care to review my health and carefully explain the procedure and what to expect. Mr Hartwright visited on the morning of the operation to again explain the procedure and check I was happy. Visited again post op to check and review. Two further post op meetings to check upon progress, explaining the mechanics behind the replacement and offering advice and support. I had a slight chuckle at his excitement and delight when showing me the exact measurements and perfect positioning of the joint. He was even happy to explain the X-Ray to my 6 year old son who was keen to be educated. I have waited a week before placing this review as I wanted to think hard and come up with any critical observations to help the reader and Mr Hartwright and his team, but I honestly cant come up with anything. It is obvious the man is a professional, knows what he is doing and clearly cares for his patient without a sniff of arrogance. One last thing; he remembered me. Of course he would have read my notes beforehand and it was only 6 weeks from start to end, but it does make you feel valued.
