      Excellent:
      Upon meeting Mr Phillips, I immediately gained the impression that he was a man who imbued confidence in you to believe in his professional competence. He explained the procedures involved thoroughly and eventually carried out a difficult operation perfectly. I have nothing but praise for him.

      Could be improved:
      Mr Phillips and all members of his team were brilliant, as were the nursing staff. The hospital itself was very clean. Improvements can always be made i.e. more staff, if the required funding is available.

  • Richard Tremayne Roach

    Orthopaedic Surgeon, Mr.

    • Location: The Princess Royal Hospital - TelfordService: Hip and knee replacement

      Excellent:
      Both @ clinic & on the ward all medical & nursing staff were very kind & helpful. The physio following the operation has been excellent.

      Could be improved:
      Gluten free menu options. Patients are given a choice of 8 main meals (same ones for lunch AND supper) this is very monotonous if you are a patient for any length of time. The menu fails to mention such things as jacket potatoes etc. or any fish dishes.

    • Location: The Princess Royal Hospital - Telford

      Saw Mr Roach on Friday 14th February 2014 with foot problems. He was very understanding, went into detail and as it happens the problem wasn't what my doc diagnosed. Due for MRI scan this week. He gets things sorted quickly. We'll recommend him.
