"Breast care unit Kettering GH"

About: Kettering General Hospital / General surgery

Excellent service from the whole breast care unit

The Consultant and their team are a credit to the NHS and the KGH

I do have the option of private health care, but the waiting times would have been no quicker and the aftercare service in the unit is far better than that I had experienced for another operation in the private sector.

I had two ops, again the staff on Geddington although overstretched did an amazing job - my only concern is the patient waiting area on the Geddington ward.

It is mixed sex and yet you are left sitting there with surgical stockings on waiting for a bed/room. One lady was asked to change into her operating gown in the toilet within the waiting area not good - germs I would presume being the biggest factor.

On my second visit there were no rooms or beds free for doctors to consult there patients, and I was seen in a small office.
