Waiting time has dropped

I had a hip replacement operation on April 15 at Wansbeck General Hospital.

I would like to thank all the staff for their superb and professional assistance, which made my stay as comfortable as possible.

In 2009 I had my first hip operation, which was then nine months on a waiting list.

In 2011 I had a knee replacement, which was then three months on the waiting list.

This time I waited only six weeks.

If I were to make a statistical comment, I reckon the NHS is in good hands.
