"My good experience"

About: Northern General Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

Last week I had an operation on my neck due to a herniated disc in my spine. The op was to rectify it, particularly the problem it caused with my radial nerve.

The treatment I received from when I arrived until I left was exemplary. The staff were extremely kind not only to me but to other people on the ward. The care was first class and very professional, but the most important thing was how we were all treated as people. You hear a lot of nightmare stories about the nhs and not much about what they get right. The staff and nurses on huntsman 4 deserve recognition of a job well done, particularly as they short staffed at the time. Thanks
