"Treated with the utmost care by everyone concerned"

About: Northern General Hospital / Gastroenterology Royal Hallamshire Hospital / Breast surgery

(as the patient),

Just before Christmas I had a routine blood test at Totley Medical Centre. On Christmas eve my doctor rang and asked if he could come to see me because I was very anaemic. He examined me and told me that he would fast track an appointment because of the weather, but I was admitted to Northern General Hospital Brearly 6 on the 25th Jan and stayed overnight to have the procedure on the 26th. I was treated with the utmost care by everyone concerned from the doctor at the surgery and everyone at NGH. Five years ago after being monitored regularly for an aortic aneurysm, I was found to have breast cancer and in the following couple of weeks I had a mastectomy in the Hallamshire G2. Again I was treated with the utmost care and 3 months later I was in NGH for the repair of the aortic aneurysm and apart from losing the first couple of days, I was well looked after and cared for by everyone, and al this was due to the NHS who I owe my life to. All this happened whilst I was struggling with my husband who has dementia. he is now in Woodland view nursing home where he is receiving excellent care form the NHS nurses and carers.
