About: Kettering General Hospital

Can't fault the staff but they are extremely understaffed. Short cuts on everything and it's unsurprising so many mistakes are made. There were bits of stone in my mash and a very small choice of food. One night I was sat for 4 hours crying before given any pain relief and they now seem unable to give you anything unless they've seen you crying for atleast an hour, during which time not a single nurse asked if I was ok. Consultants getting paid a ridiculous amount just to try kick you out soon as without finding any cause or solution to the pain, it's literally like they don't care. It's honestly ridiculous and I will not be using the nhs again in a hurry. Very disappointed.
