  • A big thank-you to all of the staff who were involved in my ACL reconstruction op on 12th July. Everyone was so kind, helpful, considerate and efficient. My knee is now recovering well from the trauma of the op and I am up and about and doing my physio! I would definitely recommend this as a place for treatment, it is clean, quiet and has a lovely calm atmosphere.
