The Best Place to Have a Hip Op? Dorchester Hospital ...

It's official... Dorset County Hospital's hip replacement service is the best in the Country!

This comes from data collected by the NHS who asked patients around Britain about their health before and after the surgery.

The Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) is an NHS initiative which asks patients about their health and quality of life before they have an operation, and about their health afterwards, and Dorset County Hospital came out on top.

Peter Ward, the hip surgeon consultant, explains why he thinks they did so well, "We've got a very enthusiatic team, both in theatres and on the ward, a couple of years ago we started introducing a rapid hip recovery programme demonstrating that patients could get home within one, two, or three days of their hip replacement, and this seemed to re energise our approach to hip surgery."

He added that the team had been "suprised, but delighted" by the news, and wants to thank the whole team.
