"Outstanding treatment received from the..."

About: Leighton Hospital

I suffered with leg ulcers for 3 & a half years & had various different treatments but to no avail.

I was recommended by a friend to contact the NHS Consultant at Leighton Hospital who kindly agreed to take my case on.

After my initial consultation they told me that I was not a lost cause & they could offer me treatment which they hoped would heal my leg ulcer in 12 months - they were true to their word even though it took 13 months.

Thanks to this Consultnat, the support of the nursing team & Kiltearn Medical Centre my overall NHS experience was outstanding.

The treatment & customer care was superb, nothing was ever too much trouble and I am happy to say that I have been leg ulcer free for 12 months now.

My quality of life has improved immensely.

I really can't thank the NHS enough.
