"Top surgeon"

About: Northern General Hospital

My husband recently has major surgery for the removal of cancer on the oesophagus. (15.10.15)

From start to finish the surgeon was involved. the surgeon explained everything in detail to us both. The McMillan nurse was also very supportive.

There are no words that can fully show our appreciation and gratitude to this great surgeon.

The after care in Critical care was also second to none, and to top it all the surgeon also did their ward rounds on their days off.

Thank you so much. My husband is now recovering well.
