"Fabulous care over the weekend"

About: Kettering General Hospital

I would like to thank the staff who were working on the night shift of Friday 6th June on Maple Ward. Your attention and care was faultless. In particular, I would like to thank the female Doctor for her care (once again). Our paths crossed for a second time in the early hours of Saturday morning and for the second time you helped me out. I never had an opportunity to thank you for saving my life, two years ago. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. You are an asset to Kettering Hospital and I hope your career goes from strength to strength. KGH has had bad publicity of late, but when the chips are down, I have found that I can count on the hard working and professional staff.

Response from Kettering General Hospital

It is with great pleasure that I respond to your comments on NHS Choices regarding the care you received while on Maple ward at Kettering in June 2014. We work very hard as a team to provide individualised care to all women we care for to ensure you have a positive experience at a time which can be upsetting and traumatic. We are really pleased to have achieved this for you and your comments will be shared with the team; it means a lot to them all to hear that their dedicated work is very much appreciated.
