Hip Replacement

December 4, 2023
Had right hip replacement on the 18th November in the Elective Orthopaedic Suite ..
All so professionally managed- can only sing the praises of all the staff at Pontefract Hospital - the care and treatment i received was first class

Excellent service

I had an out patients appointment in the eye dept was booked to see 2 different areas. Appointments ran to time the staff were friendly and polite. I was told treatment was necessary and the waiting time was 2 months. I received a phone call on my way home re that treatment which was done 2 days later. well done

Consultant was good but follow up poor

Respiratory Medicine

Consultant saw me and sent me for a scan. All good so far.
I'm still waiting for the scan results 5 weeks on I've had two broken promises by admin staff when I've chased for the report

Radiology department

Not that impressed - had physiotherapy recently which didn't work and they're still trying to find out what's wrong with me.

Waiting times too long

I was kept waiting over an hour for a blood test today which was ridiculous, it's not usually this slow.

Great hospital, but not enough services here

I've been in Pontefract for years and I think the hospital is not used enough now that so many services have moved to Pinderfields or Dewsbury. There aren't enough staff at the blood clinic and waiting times are too long.

Smashing hospital

July 3, 2015
I've been to various departments today and they've all been friendly and thorough. They need more staff on the blood section because we had to wait quite a while there, but otherwise can't fault it.

Had a heart operation a while ago

Now come regularly for blood tests. Staff are always absolutely great. I prefer coming here than going to LGI or Seacroft. If not for the consultants at Pontefract I wouldn't be here today.

Blood clinic - overall ok

Waiting times can be long, but it only takes one problem patient to slow it down and we all have to wait longer. Sometimes it's quite quick.
