"General Surgeon"

About: Burnley General Hospital

I would just like to pass comment that my Consultant is wonderful. I have been having on going problems and symptoms since having my gall bladder removed by a different consultant and after numerous admissions to hospital this consultant has gone above and beyond to help me and carrying out investigations to illiminate things. This consultant is kind, considerate, very polite and listens to what you have to say. if all consultants were like this there would never be any complaints. i think they are an asset to the NHS and would reccomend them to any patient, this surgeon is brilliant.
