"You've made such a difference to my life"

About: Royal Derby Hospital / Gastroenterology

(as the patient),

I have been Dr Norton's patient for 10 years now. All throughout my treatment he has been wonderful. My medical history is complex and I've visited most diagnostic and clinical areas at Derby royal but I feel Dr Norton deserves a MASSIVE thank you.

its usually the surgeons who get the Thank yous so it's time a medic got recognised for his work. I have never met a more caring considerate wonderful doctor - and I've met many through my work as a senior health worker and as a patient. I can't praise him enough! The staff both on ward 307 gastro and out patients clinic are also worth a mention as they are always polite and helpful. I've spent many weeks as an inpatient and I've never had a bad experience on the ward - touch wood I've not been in for a while.

I've nominated Dr Norton for a Daily Mail award too. All the staff have nothing but good things to say about him and that speaks volumes.

So THANK YOU once again Dr Norton. You've made such a difference to my life
