"My journey over 5 years"

About: North Manchester General Hospital

I was diagnosed at a different hospital than North Manchester General but I had my operation for tongue & lymph node cancer and my treatment was at Christies in conjunction with Crumpsall. I have had several operations and visits to other hospitals but I felt extremely safe and well looked after at Crumpsall. I was suddenly a person and not a number and although my visits have reduced over the 5 years of my journey living with and beyond cancer, and no matter who I see I am treated with friendly, kind respect. It has been a long time since I ever felt this from any other hospital. My family were treated with the same respect as me and this helped them when having to visit me at my "worst" health times. I cannot praise North Manchester General enough at how they have brought me this far in my journey. I could not have done without their help and my MacMillan Nurses. They are tremendously in the top Grade, well above "A" for me.
