"My concern over the lack of staffing at the Physio Department of Box Hill Hospital."

I have recently had a right shoulder operation. It wasn't at Box Hill Hospital, but due to circumstances I ended up in the Ortho ward at Box Hill and was very well attended too. I was given great care. Now that I am in the Physio Department at Box Hill I have great concerns at their level of staffing. Only one full time physio is on staff at the present time and he is taking, a probably well-earned six week holiday, but that leaves the staff to zero. When I last visited this week, the receptionist was desperately trying to locate and employ a local Physio. The present, other locum physio is moving on and so there is no guarantee of a physio for the future. Surely staffing at such an important department is paramount. Having had such good care from Box Hill Hospital I do worry about the continuance of this - now especially within the Physio department.
