On behalf on my wife Wendy who had a knee replacement we would like to put on record what first class treatment and service we had. From the surgeon Mr Palmer, down to the cleaner, everyone was not only professional but so pleasant, caring and time to deal with any problem. Although there only two days, it was a most stress free as it could be experience. Thank You



I feel i have two functioning lower legs once more, no longer reach for my sticks and carry items without fear of falling. The salutation at the beginning of this letter should read “Mr Wonderful”

Thanks and kind regards



Mr Palmer and his team were magnificent – I went in for an arthroscopy and the whole process was so brilliantly professional and friendly. Keep up the great work and thank you.14/03/2021. HP

In 2018, I had an open bunionectomy, lateral release, Akin osteotomy and dorsal cheilectomy with Mr Palmer.
I wonder if you can pass on to him the fantastic impact that this operation had on my quality of life.
My husband and I share the hobby of travelling and walking (around 70-130 miles a month). Yesterday, as we were walking, my husband, Richard, commented,”…your operation was an investment in our quality of life – definitely not a cost”.
I wanted Mr Palmer to know what an amazing difference his skilled hands have had on my life, with my sincere thanks.
