"Simply Outstanding!"

About: Northern General Hospital

From the moment my condition was analysed and treatment outlined to the moment I left hospital after my operation I felt that I was the most important person in the world. Every member of staff provided fabulous care. After 4 weeks I am well on the way to recovery following an arthroscopy on my left ankle. The only thing that was frustrating was being admitted at 10:00 in the morning and not having the operation until 16:00. However, I do undertsand that several specialist areas need time to examine the patient prior to the operation. Overall, I can't really fault anything about the hosptial.
