About: Kettering General Hospital

I was so emotional going into Rockingham Wing wards again on the morning of my hysteroscopy.

The last time I'd been there was for the birth of my youngest son 11 years ago. When I arrived at Maple Ward everyone was so lovely and put my mind at ease straight away. I was treated with dignity and respect throughout. All the staff work so hard. When I was upset a lovely nurse took the time to offer an arm round my shoulder to give me support and reassurance. The new operating theatre is impressive and the staff down there were lovely too. I'm recovering back at home now and keeping my fingers crossed that my minor op will work for me. Thank you all. ps I can recommend the quality of the cups of tea!
