"A very professional, caring, experience,..."

About: Kettering General Hospital

What I liked

The very helpful and dedicated staff in ICU and Harrowden A Ward, also initially the paramedics and casualty staff.

I could have not had bettter treatment on the Ward, Harrowden |A, than I did, all the staff, Doctors, Nursing, Cleaning etc were excellent. I wish I had listened to their advice more though.

ICU were wonderful and extremely dedicated and did not want to give up on me. I was not aware of all that took place to save my life, but my Family has been letting me know some of it since I came round. The more I am told the more I am amazed.

The Food served was excellent, always what was asked for, warm if neccessary, cold if neccessary, tasty, well cooked, using quality ingredients. There was always something to choose from the menu. The portions (I think I had Large) were more than adequate. Congratulations to Magaement and Staff for the food.

They have been shared with all of the staff on the Unit and in the wider Clinical Team. These comments go a long way to maintain and improve staff morale on ICU.
