About: Leighton Hospital

I was taken to ward 10 straight from a gp appointment. Upon arrival my bed was ready, staff were there on hand to take my details, give pain relief and examine me. The speed of this was exceptional. I was very scared being told I needed a general anaesthetic for my operation but as the staff were aware this was my first operation and how scared I was they were so reassuring and made me feel at ease. I felt very comfortable before and after the operation and the staff on ward 10 - nurses, healthcare staff and other members were fantastic and I hope they really do get the credit they deserve. Lots of bad press about the NHS but ward 10 - wow absolutely fantastic and I cannot thank you enough for your help, support and class A service in such horrible circumstances.

Thanks again it's very much appreciated!
