(as the patient),

Right from the beginning of my journey it has been first class all the way.

Firstly at Rotherham Hospital for diagnosis. The Northern General for checks and preparations. Everybody doing their jobs in a very professional way.

On to the operation and after care – absolutely marvellous. My fitness was always good so that helped a lot. I am now back to walking 12 miles at least 3 times a week. Plenty of gardening. Driving away to short breaks.

Thanks also to the team at breathing space. Most grateful.
