Heartfelt thanks for waving your magic wand (called surgery)! I intend to keep myself as fit and healthy as possible, so as not to squander the pain free gift of my new hip! I hope to that at a later date I should require similar surgery on my right hip, I shall be fortunate enough to return to you and your team at Circle.

Dear Mr Burwell, This is just a short note as I wasn't able to see you personally. I wanted to thank you directly for the procedure that you carried out so successfully. It was interesting when your colleague consultant was reviewing the "after" X-Ray and was heard to exclaim "what a brilliant job Mr Burwell has done for you". Whilst I obviously don't have that same degree of expertise, I fully agree and thought it only fair that I would write to thank you for your skill, advice, efficiency and reassurance.

Dear Mr Burwell, Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to have the new hip op and for all the care and attention to detail you have given through the whole process. Please pass my grateful thanks to your theatre team although 'out for the count' at the time it was great to know I was in safe hands.
