It is difficult to sum up my appreciation of Mrs Craig and her team of specialist nurses, Tracey and Yvonne. Not only is she clearly a great surgeon but she is a decent, warm human being clearly dedicated to her profession by the hours she puts in and how she makes herself available to her patients. Without ever sugar coating the seriousness of the procedure she was able to explain the process, the potential dangers and to reassure me that she would do everything to arrive at a positive outcome. I was reassured by her and confident that I was in the safest hands possible. Tracey was also a huge help when I had to be readmitted via the urgent walk in centre and during my time in the MRI. She clearly carries a great deal of clout and was able to get things moving. I will always be in their debt

From the moment my treatment started Mrs Craig explained every aspect of each procedure with great care and professionalism. I fully understood everything and felt at ease all the way through my experience. Mrs Craig kept me up to date with every part of my treatment during my operation and post op and made me feel at ease with the whole process thank you Paul
