I had excellent service from the Health Centre in 2013 and now I am happy to find the experience is being repeated in 2014.
Please keep up the good work.

Dear Joe

Thank you for sharing your experiences with us and for the assurances that excellent care is being maintained. It was very kind of you to feedback and the team really appreciate you taking the time to do this.

I have received outstanding service in Garland Road Health Centre in 2015-2016. Both my consultant Mr Andrew MacFarlane and podiatrist Mr Ryan Ballerino are an asset to the NHS. I saw only them throughout my whole process with appointments and my consultation. They carried out my surgery in Queen Mary's hospital June 2016 and can't thank them enough for the incredible job they have done on my foot. A dedicated and hardworking team.

Dear Claudia

Thank you so much for your kind comments about our podiatric surgery service. Andrew and Ryan were extremely pleased to receive your feedback. I also appreciate the direct email you sent us about your experience. I hope you have now fully recovered following your surgery and am delighted you are happy with the result.

Many thanks

I would like to give a big thank you to Mr Mcfarlane, Ryan and the rest of the team for the outstanding service and care I have received. They were able to put me at ease throughout the whole process, even on the operating table! I now have a pair of very happy feet with no pain. Thank you again.

Dear Carol

Many thanks for leaving such a lovely comment in relation to the podiatric surgery service and for the care Mr McFarlane and his team provided during your recent procedure.

I have passed your compliment onto the team; we are delighted to hear you no longer have any pain and wish you well for the future.

Words cannot explain how delighted I am that I proceeded with my surgery. I've hesitated for years worrying things might not go well and kept putting my operation off suffering the pain and discomfort. I'm now on week six after my bunion surgery and the healing process has gone really well. I followed all the recommendations given by the doctors. My foot looks and feels great! The scarring is next to invisible already. All of it is because of the fact that I was in hands of the two outstanding professionals who are a huge asset to NHS - Mr. Ryan Ballerino and Mr Andy McFarlane. The entire procedure starting from the first consultation to the last appointment (that I had today) was excellent. Caring and informative, highly professional people. Massive thank you to both of you. I'm a very happy patient and when I'm due to have my other foot done I know I'll definitely be going back to see you. Well done! You have helped yet another human being to feel better!
