Wednesday 22 November 2017

Richard Allen, a local artist and retired college lecturer recently underwent hip replacement surgery at Woodland Hospital with Consultant Mr Shah and was delighted at the care he received.

Mr Allen, who now works for Shell as a Customer Service Champion has written to thank staff following his two life changing surgeries over summer.

‘I wanted to formally thank Woodland Hospital, my surgeon Mr Shah, my anaesthetist Dr Dravid and the whole team for the way I was treated at Woodland Hospital, both before and after my surgeries.

‘I have now recovered well enough to return to work and I wanted to say how much better I am feeling and moving about, which is absolutely brilliant. I feel as though I did three or four years ago, before my hip condition really began to affect my daily life. This is completely due to the operations that were carried out with such care and attention. ‘

‘I consider the service Woodland Hospital provided to be of the highest calibre and it has made such a difference to my life. I cannot thank everyone enough for the procedures and the way I was looked after. The hospital and staff are very pleasant and efficient and I would not hesitate to recommend Woodland Hospital to my friends and family.’

General Manager, Tania Terblanche said 'I am delighted that Mr Allen had a postitive experience at Woodland Hospital. Our team work all very hard to ensure each patient has the best possible care throughout their stay and I am very appreciative of Mr Allen's comments.'
