"Extremely impressed by care received for gynae op"

About: Northampton General Hospital (Acute)

Anything else?

I was recently diagnosed with cancer of the uterus and underwent a total abdominal hysterectomy at Northampton General Hospital. From my very first appointment discussing the MRI scan findings I was treated with the utmost care and sensitivity and this has continued right through from surgery continuing to follow up appointments. The care I received in the Spencer Ward was incredible and deserves comment. People are quick to find fault with the NHS but I believe praise should also be accredited where due. I cannot praise all the staff highly enough, the consultants, doctors, nursing staff, meal providers and cleaning staff - a real credit to the NHS. It certainly made a very worrying time extremely easy to cope with and I felt I had to highlight this - Thank you all.
