Here’s what Eileen Mullin (73) of Cork, one of many patients who got off a hospital waiting list by travelling to Belfast for treatment at Kingsbridge Private Hospital, thought of her experience,

 

“I was in agony for 18 months with my hip, and using two crutches to get around before I got to see a consultant, who told me that I would have to wait at least 2 more years for a replacement operation at a local hospital.  It was all so straightforward and easy. I am actually looking forward to going back for my check-up!  A month after the operation, I can do most of the things I used to do. I am pain-free and have got my independence back. I am not dancing again yet, but I will be soon …”
