"A stunning first class Doctor"

About: Grantham & District Hospital

I am stunned that just as I was about to give up on ever finding an answer to my illness when fate placed me in the wrong blood department, but thankfully with the most stunningly clever and caring doctor.

A doctor in the Hematology Clinic at Grantham Hospital rescued me.

After six years of pressing doctors and specialists to open their minds and look at my illnesses as a whole rather than individual cases the educated, caring this doctor did just that.

I was sat in the wrong department yet thank God they decided that I did need help.

So stepping out side of the normal box they did all within their power to help me.

After six years of suffering many strange unconnected illnesses, some symptoms are disappearing and for me who was considering suicide, there is light at the end of the tunnel.

What ever the final outcome this doctor is a stunning well educated person who cares.

I thank them and praise Grantham Hospital for being wise enough to have this doctor on their team as a stunning asset.
