"Heart failure: Staff have given me confidence for the future."

About: Rotherham Hospital / Cardiology

(as the patient),

I have nothing but praise for the NHS. My own doctor at the Market Surgery at Wath upon Deanne has give me time, advise and encouragement.

Heart failure specialist nurse - Janet Laing has also given me time and the benefit of her specialist care and advice with kindness and professionalism for which I am most grateful. This has given me confidence for the future.

I must add that I have a kidney complaint which has been treated at the Northern General Hospital - again with kindness and professionalism, shortly I am transferring to Rotherham District Hospital for travel convenience only.
