  • Five star treatment in a five star hospital; I cannot praise them enough. A very short waiting time, excellent caring staff at all levels in a happy and friendly environment who put me at ease from the time of my arrival until I left 34 hours later, following a total hip replacement. The operation itself was handled so well and I had soft calming music played through earphones throughout the procedure. From the consultant and anaesthetic staff to aftercare from the doctors, nursing staff, physiotherapist, catering staff and cleaners was outstanding, just what you need during the recovery period, and the 24 hour helpline after discharge is very reassuring. I won’t be so apprehensive next time if I had to have the other hip replaced.

  • The thought of cataract surgery under local anaesthetic was terrifying me. Several friends had been to the Shepton Mallet Treatment Centre so I opted for it. I fell on my feet. I could not have had better treatment in such a reassuring and kind atmosphere anywhere. Everyone was so understanding and I will always owe thanks to my consultant surgeon for offering me the choice of the multifocal lens as I was a suitable patient – after 55 years I no longer have to wear glasses. I find medical establishments challenging to say the least but this truly was an excellent experience. Thank you.

    I would like to commend the staff at the Shepton Mallet Treatment Centre. The care I received was excellent. All the staff I met were caring. They listened to any concerns I had and reassured me. The cleanliness was also of a high standard. I would definitely recommend the centre to family and friends.

  • I want to thank all the staff at Shepton Mallet treatment centre for the wonderful care I had recently while I was having a hip replacement. I had not been in hospital for a long time and really did not know what to expect, I was treated with kindness and respect by all and soon felt more relaxed. The cleanliness of the hospital was fantastic, and the food superb. So once again, thank you to you all and I would definitely recommend anyone to use this centre.

 All surgery will proceed as planned

Because we only deal with scheduled care, and no emergency cases, we are not affected by the NHS announcement to cancel all non-urgent surgery; if you are booked in for an appointment or surgery with us it will still go ahead.
