Dear Mr Jamil,
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for the excellent care you gave during the hip replacement option.
The planning involved with the operation – pre-op, rehab and Surgeon appointment was as smooth as could be and we had no excessive waiting time whatsoever. Everything was explained in detail and this gave us confidence the procedure would go well.
The staff were excellent and all the staff in the ward were amazing and nothing was too much trouble for them.
Once again, a big thank you to you and your staff.


Total right knee replacement operation performed by Orthopaedic Surgeon Mr Wiqqas Jamil. Prior to my admission Mr. Jamil explained to me what was involved and what pain and discomfort to expect afterwards. He said I would hate him for the first two week, he was right, I did. However, now seven weeks have elapsed and I would like to put on record my thanks and appreciation to his very talented and professional gentleman. His work and aftercare are of the highest standard. I would also like to give any thanks to all the dedicated nursing staff involved in my recovery. They were professional, attentive, helpful and cheerful throughout my stay. I would also like to compliment the kitchen staff on the appetising and wholesome food that they produced on a daily basis.
Once again many thanks to Mr Jamil, his team and all who were involved.


I would just like to say a big thank you everyone at the hospital.
Mr Jamil is an excellent surgeon, he operated on my Dad in August. My Dad has made an excellent recovery after his hip replacement.
Once again, thank you for the excellent service from everyone.


Dear Mr Jamil,
I take this opportunity to thank you for your care and expertise shown to me and my recent Total Knee Replacement with Patella Resurfacing.
I know as a surgeon you will say you are only doing your job, but a job well done I fell should be acknowledged.
I promise I will do as I am told regards my recovery process.

To Mr Jamil,
I would like to thank you for all you have done up to now, you have been so caring and kind. Thanks for getting to the hospital so quickly and hope to know soon what is wrong.
Thanks again.

To Mr Jamil and your team,
Thanks for all your hard work and great care. It’s wonderful not to be in pain.
Thank you.


I’m writing to express my appreciation for the care I received during my recent stay.
In October 2015 I underwent surgery for a total knee replacement. My Consultant, Mr Jamil, was the Orthopaedic Surgeon, and I was very impressed and reassured by his professional, yet kind and friendly approach. The care I received from Mr Jamil, right through to the staff and nurses on the ward was excellent. In fact, the whole procedure was a positive experience resulting in a pain-free knee.
Thank you for my successful operation and after-care.


I wanted to write to you regarding my recent experience in hospital. I had a full knee replacement. Forgive me for the length of time it has taken to write as it took a while to recover, then with Christmas and New Year the weeks have carried on.
Everyone was caring, considerate and wonderful. From the receptionist who kept me updated as to when I could expect the operation to be.
The nurses in pre-op who covered everything regarding my medical history.
The anaesthetist who discussed the best way forward and the excellent care pre the operation. I also mentioned I’d love a cup of tea and there was one there as soon as I came out of the operation. They were lovely.
Mr Jamil and his surgical team were excellent, explaining everything that would happen during the operation and what to expect afterwards. Which meant I knew exactly what to expect with timescales afterwards.
The sisters and nursing staff were all lovely and have wonderful care as I recovered. Also the aftercare nurse who phoned me at home was well informed and I was able to ask her questions.
The physio go me up and about in the hospital and continued with outpatient physio. This informed me what I could do and how to move about.
I have nothing but praise for all the staff I have come in contact with who made the experience as painless as possible.


I felt that I had to write to you to let you know how pleased my wife and I have been with the care she received at your hospital.
We live in an age where the media are all to quick in passing negative comments about healthcare.
May we thank all the team for their help, understanding and care my wife received during our visits.
Special thanks to Mr Jamil. His people skills starting with a small and hand shake, to his expertise in explaining clearly the methods of treatment, outcomes, possible problems, show true professionalism.
He is a credit to the hospital.
Many thanks.


I would just like to write to say what a wonderful service Mr Jamil provided for my husband upon his attendance at the clinic. He is due to have an operation some time in November and we were so touched by the level of care, time and professionalism provided by Mr Jamil, what a wonderful man.
I feel compelled to commend you on the excellent service your hospital provides and for the care and attention that has been provided to us.
Kindest regards.


My mother is under the care of Mr Jamil.
I have met Mr Jamil and I wish to express my gratitude to him and his team for looking after my elderly mother so well during her recent admittance. My thanks also extends to her GP who quickly contacted her after discharge to check that she was well.
Kind regards.

I am a 59 year old man and over the past fifteen years or so I have had to attend hospital many times, both as an outpatient and inpatient.
This year I have attended the trauma orthopaedic clinic and I was seen by Mr Jamil on two occasions, who went out of his way to make sure I understood everything and he informed me that he had gotten me referred to the right person for my problem.
I can truthfully say that all the care that I have received on each visit has been first class in every possible way, so please allow me to thank you and your very caring staff.

Dear Mr Jamil,
Following on from by O/P appointment last week to review my Total Knee Replacement I just wanted to thank you for a job well done.
I find you to be very approachable and caring and compassionate towards your patients.  
With the greatest of respect I hope I don’t have to see you until my 5 year review in 4 years time. However should the need arise I wouldn’t hesitate to place myself in your very capable hands. 
Many thanks and take care. All the best wishes.


Although somewhat belated but nonetheless most sincerely I wish to place on record my grateful thanks for the surgical skills of Mr Jamil and his medical team for my left knee total replacement.

Dear Mr Jamil,
This note is to sincerely thank you for all the support, help, dedication and care you and all your team showed to me when I was a patient within your department.
All the nurses, radiographers and doctors were understanding, patient and kind when I attended appointments and was an in-patients.

I am obviously grateful for the skills and expertise for Mr Jamil and staff of the Orthopaedic Dept. I cannot thank them enough.

I am aged 68 and I had severe pain in my hip. I met Mr Jamil at Tameside Hospital who is a consultant. He was the most courteous and approachable doctor I have ever met. I was soon admitted for Hip replacement surgery and put at ease. He and his team asked me all about my ailments, back pain, spondylosis, shoulder pain and arthritis and assured me they would put supports and padding under these pressure points to help so my pain following surgery would not be worse. After surgery Mr Jamil was at my bedside ensuring my wound was looked after. My aftercare and pain management was excellent and the scar healed beautifully. I have nothing but praise for my whole procedure. 

To Dr Jamil’s team in Theatre,
It’s always the theatre staff that get left out, but not this time – ‘not on my watch’ Thank you.
Just a little something to have with a brew. I’m so glad I saw you in clinic that day, when you said that you would take it on and do this procedure. I thank you very much for this. 
Exercises are doing well. Thanks again.

I wish to thank Mr Jamil and Dr Sheikh for going beyond the “Call of Duty” for giving back my mother’s mobility under very difficult circumstances. Mr Jamil and his team are amazing. My mother is now able to walk without constant pain she once had.
My mother is very grateful, and is the whole family. Thank you.
