"Consultant"

About: Warrington Hospital

A couple of weeks ago I was referred to the TIA clinic having had 2 occurrences of mini stroke symptoms plus high blood pressure. I am a 48 year old healthy career woman who has never been ill. All this came as a massive shock. I was referred to a consultant at the TIA clinic. On arrival I was sent for an ECG - I didn't wait - after this I was sent to a room to be weighed and have my blood pressure taken as well as complete a questionnaire by 2 lovely nurses who could see I was stressed and tried to calm me. After this I was sent to clinic 1 to sit and wait for for the consultant. Only I didn't sit and wait, they came straight away! This amazing person made me feel at ease. They were exceptionally kind and had a welcoming smile. After spending a considerable time answering questions and going through several tests the consultant delivered their diagnosis. An absolute expert in their field. After spending 1 hour with them I felt so much better, they gave me a list of what they wanted me to do / I have done them and continue to do so. The consultant gave me their direct line and told me to call anytime, they also gave me an open appointment

This person is special. An absolute asset to the NHS and to any hospital that is lucky enough to have them.

They have a reputation as the consultant everyone wants to see. The nurses told me that. I was lucky - they are my Consultant. I would like to thank them and the NHS for the fantastic care and service I received.

Thank you. Lisa Whitfield.
