What our patients have to say
“Thank you for your help and support”
“I just wanted to express my thanks to you regarding my new knee”
“I hugely appreciated Stuart Roy's understanding of how important it was for me to get back to running, and how much it matters to me.”
“In May 2018 I underwent surgery for an anterior hip replacement with an Exeter hip joint. This was carried out by Mr Maheson. ”
“...all the staff were pleasant, helpful and efficient.”
“I was in the Spire Cardiff Hospital recently and am now in a position to recommend the hospital and staff there. I work in both the oil and gas sectors in Indonesia as an ISO Technical Adviser and in the UK and the rest of the world as an International Mountain Leader delivering training (Navigation - First Aid - Health & Safety), treks and expeditions. It is therefore very important that I keep in good shape as far as medical and fitness are concerned so that I can mobilise at short notice to accept interesting assignments ranging from ISO audits in the Java Sea for pipe-laying operations or leading clients to Everest Base Camp or to climb Mt Toubkal in Morocco. I'd like to express my sincere thanks to Mr Guy Blackshaw and his medical team for caring for me during my operation on Monday and also to Julie who brought my dinner afterwards and even brought me a second cup of tea without my having to ask her. If the facility was on Trip Adviser I'd certainly be awarding five stars for the care I received overall. My work in the UK also sees me delivering the British Heart Foundation's Heartstart ELS training course and in 2014 I received their "Heart Hero Wales" award for delivering CPR training to community groups. In 2018 I will be leading a couple of Charity Treks to raise funds for Wales Air Ambulance, an important charity in Wales. The two treks I'll be leading are to Kilimanjaro (5,895m) in September and Everest Base Camp (5,550m) in November. I have led on both of these treks previously with all my clients reaching the summit of Africa's highest mountain and on five previous visits to Everest Base Camp. Anyone interested in either of these trips can visit my website (www.bigfootservices.co.uk) and contact me for further details. Private small group treks are also available on a worldwide basis for those seeking adventure or wishing to raise funds for their chosen charity. Closer to home and mostly in the Brecon Beacons National Park, I offer navigation and mountain training for small groups wishing to learn more about hill and mountain walking and how to enjoy these activities safely. Once again, many thanks to all concerned who looked after me during my stay.”
“In the last ten months, I have undergone two total hip replacement operations under Mr Stephen Sarasin (Orthopaedic Consultant -Spire Cardiff Hospital). Quite simply, Mr Sarasin has changed my life. As an ex-professional footballer who had undergone a number of operations over the years I was naturally concerned, however, my quality of life had deteriorated to such an extent that I had to act. From my first meeting with Mr Sarasin everything was dealt with in a thoroughly professional manner, everything about the operation was explained in detail and the care and consideration I received throughout the whole ten month period was nothing short of exemplary. My quality of life has improved beyond belief. I wake up every day free of pain and will be forever grateful for the skill and dedication of Mr Stephen Sarasin.”
“I feel I must write to you, not only to thank you for your expert professional service, but for your kindness in dealing with me. My eyesight is now greatly improved and I shall be able to review my artwork and other interests!”
“Thank you. Two little words can mean so much, So I am sending them back to you for bringing the colour back into my life. A really big thank you!”
“I was feeling really anxious prior to my MRI scan. On arrival I found the staff to be really friendly and reassuring which helped to put my mind at ease. I took a friend along for support and was really pleased to find out that she was allowed in the room with me while having the MRI. This really helped with my anxiety levels and I was able to go through with the MRI with no problems.”
