"NHS at its best"

About: Kettering General Hospital

Anything else?

After my wife had a TIA dealt with at A and E a long wait but cannot fault the care and commitment in any way. Two days later we had a appointment at the Stroke clinic. The person who dealt with us was a fantastic nurse smiling and so helpful, totally put us at our ease. Spent a good half hour with the Consultant who again so helpful dealing with all our queries .But I have to say the icing on the cake has to be today my wife had to have a x ray so while we where in the hospital we just went round to the stroke clinic to ask the nurse a query about my wife treatment. Not only was the query dealt with while we had a coffee , but when we returned to the clinic we saw a consultant there and then without a prior appointment. Fantastic service thank Kettering Hospital
