Deploying Surgery Hero at NHS Sherwood Forest Hospital has been a great success. The team were attentive and diligent in getting the project live. At times we had to be agile due to the changing landscape, but the Surgery Hero team were always supportive and great to work with. The patients are getting super results with this innovative approach.

Success Stories


With the help and encouragement of my coach in the last 8 weeks I have lost over 24lbs, feel healthier, sleep better, and my knees have not felt this much pain-free for as long as my ageing memory can recall. Many, many thanks. And may others be as fortunate as I to receive your team's help."

For 10 years I’ve felt like I’ve been banging my head off a brick wall, but you’ve taken the time to listen when no one else would. I’ve learned I can control my own health — I don’t just have to listen to them saying ‘take this pill, take that one’. I know what I’m capable of and what’s in my control. You’ve gone into what matters to me."

My relationship with food and exercise has changed to a positive one. I now have an exercise routine which I enjoy and can keep up. I no longer have negative thoughts about food and exercise. I have become physically stronger and feel I am going to have the best possible recovery from my surgery that I wouldn't have without following this programme. My coach was very easy to talk to, caring, understanding and very helpful."
