"Brilliant staff"

About: Kettering General Hospital

I had to go into Juniper on Friday for hysteroscopy. At 63 I had never had an anaesthetic before so was a bit nervous. The staff were brilliant. Absolutely everything was explained to me by the nurse and by the anaesthestist and I was kept informed throughout my stay. All the staff I met from the porter to theatre staff were kind and the anaesthetist told me what they were doing as they gave me the drugs. I can honestly say that I have experienced no pain or nausea and was allowed to go home after two hours, my dignity preserved throughout. I may have to go back for treatment but this was such a pleasant experience that I would not feel at all nervous about going back. My heartfelt thanks to everyone.
