Hip Patients in Dorset Have Nothing to Worry About

Dorset County Hospital

7:21am 27th June 2011

Dorset County Hospital has been reassuring its patients following reports in the national press of problems with metal on metal hip replacements.

Worried patients have been contacting DCH after hearing that those with a certain type of hip resurfacing are being recalled because of safety concerns.

But the DePuy hips have NOT been been implanted at the Dorchester hospital and anyone concerned can find a contact number at the news pages of Wessex FM dot com.
