IT was with some trepidation that I was admitted to Leighton Hospital for an operation.

I need not have worried as the staff and my consultant Mr Meekins were wonderful and incredibly kind.

Ward 12 was spotlessly clean. They also have a brand new state-of-the-art theatre, which cost £22 million. 

All of the staff are very proud of the new development.

The hospital trust hold the Investors in People award which shows that everyone is singing from the same hymn sheet.

Well done Leighton Hospital and many thanks.
