“I recently had major surgery (Total Hip Replacement) and I wanted to write to tell you my story and my positive experience.

To be honest I found it a difficult surgery but knew it had to be done. I can honestly say I’ve never received better care in any other hospital – I’m in my 60’s and have had quite a number of previous majors. The collaboration and communication of the team who took care of me was exceptional.

I had a nurse called Mary and she helped me over an issue which caused me great concern and it was not a bother for her. I’m so grateful to her. My night nurses Niamh and Megan were exceptional and kept checking on me – nothing was too much for them. Mr O’Toole came to see me every day and his care was so professional and I had complete trust in him.

I wanted to write this just to say I don’t think anyone looks forward to surgery like this but my experience at the Beacon Hospital was just incredible and wanted to let you know how I felt!”
