"i was taken to the norfolk and ..."

About: Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

i was taken to the norfolk and norwich because my nearest one was closed at the weekend,i had dehydrated due to my illness that that hostpital said i didnt have although id been telling them for 8 months that something was wrong in my throat,the consultant here found the problem within 48 hours,throat cancer that during the 8 months had spread,a lot.within a week i had a 14 hour operation,followed by 2 weeks in icu and a few months on the ward,they were brilliant,always talking with me,informing asking,nothing was too much,ive been going back for years having checks and my valve that i talk with replaced every 6 to 9 months,they are still just as thoughtfull and i owe them my life 8 years on,what more can one say about the Consultant and his whole team and of course the nursing staff on the wards,thankyou one and all.

What could be improved

im sure there is always something,but i cant think of any

Anything else?

my sons just become ill and again im not happy at my local,but one e,mail and a phone call and they are there again,with advice and infomation to help,i just cant thank them enough
