"Lovely staff"

About: Kettering General Hospital

Went onto Ashton Ward on 21st May this year for knee surgery. The staff wether it be surgeons, theatre staff, nurses, auxiliaries, cleaners, physios or trainees were all lovely with the exception of 1 trainee who could only be described as an "air head" obviously in the wrong job. Night staff checking on me after my op happily made me my first post op drink in the early hours, which was much appreciated. The general care, compassion and dignity shown was exceptional. A big thank you to all for my care during my 6 day stay, still recovering at home but getting better every day.
