"Fantastic Consultants & Staff"

About: John Radcliffe Hospital

My husband came in to close a hole in the heart in September 2014 following a stroke earlier in the year. His treatment at the John Radcliffe from start to end was totally wonderful. The doctors were superb. They were professional, caring and funny which helped enormously to put both of us at ease. I was busy writing an Eulogy for my Uncle who had just passed away and they thought that was amusing not knowing that it was for my Uncle. Thank goodness that this service is here and local for us living in Aylesbury. If we had had to travel further afield it would have been a nightmare having a small family to contend with. Long may this tremendous unit always be there, saving lives. Julie and Barry
