"I felt as though I could trust what I was being..."

About: Kettering General Hospital

What I liked

I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in November and had a mastectomy in December and a lymph node biopsy. Then went back in to have lymph nodes removed in January. The surgeon was very kind and explained my options in a way that was easy to understand, (not all doctors do this). Nurses very friendly and professional.

Would like to say that the theatre team were brilliant, very reassuring and explained what they were doing whilst I waiting for anaesthetic. It really helped having the same team for the second operation has well.

Hope the chemotherapy side of treatment is as good.
