Some time ago I was admitted to Northampton General with severe abdominal pain. According to the registrar "my bowel had exploded with tumours!" Surgery followed then a colostomy then chemotherapy. Everyone I saw was excellent, all on Willow ward, my Macmillan nurse Angela who was awesome!
However I must reserve the highest possible praise for the surgeon/consultant who in my eyes can do no wrong. He was firm but fair, patient, understanding had a sense of humour and an aura that made me feel as if I was his only patient. On top of this he made me better, I would trust him to operate on me anytime.
At this time when Northampton General is receiving some bad press all I can say is this.... the hospital saved my life, all staff were exceptional, the stoma team were amazing and my consultant is without doubt The MAN!
