"Leicester General Hospital"

About: Leicester General Hospital

(as the patient),

I have been a patient at Leicester General Hospital for the past 6 years, since i was 17. I have had approx. 36 operations, and many many more procedures and admissions.

I have had many scary situations, and seen dangerous errors during my time at LGH. My condition is still unstable, and more treatment is required.

However, These nurses and doctors have become almost like family to me. They have been there when i have been at my worst, and helped me become my best. I trust all the staff at leicester general hospital with my life, and i want it to be publicly known...especially as they are getting so much negative attention

I can see that my nurses and doctors are stressed, and i can see they are tired. But when i am dying, i trust them to do the right thing.

Despite a long list of errors and complaints i have, i owe them my life.
