I went to see Mrs Craig with a problem in my bottom Mrs Craig diagnose this as an anel fistular Being non-medical a cotton/silk thread was inserted and I was instructed to floss this on a daily basis. I cannot begin to explain the pain over the first few days. It was unbearable and I needed to take painkillers I was reassured by Mrs Craig that it would get easier although at that stage I was very sceptical. As the days progressed it did indeed get much easier and I was able to come off the painkillers and floss as per my instructions. There is minimal discomfort now and flossing as per the instructions now forms part of my daily routine A big thank you to Mrs Craig for her assurance that it will get easier which thankfully it did!

When we first went to see Mrs Craig I was extremely anxious about my husbands condition. (Probably more anxious than my husband as he really hadn't taken in fully what was the problem.) We found a very caring person who made us feel that we were the only ones that she had been dealing with that day. She explained exactly (with a diagram) what was the matter and what she hoped to be able to do. She also explained fully what would happen if she couldn't get the bowel re-joined tightly enough to be used immediately. She was still 'fighting his corner' at surgery when another problem arose, but completed a successful operation. Together with her two trusted, caring nurses Tracey and Yvonne its a good team to have on your side.

Mrs Craig is a remarkable woman and an amazing surgeon. I first met Mrs Craig during an appointment at Trafford General with my Mum and, although the content of conversation was nerve wrecking and worrying, Mrs Craig was able to reassure us by clearly explaining my Mum’s case; including the possible negatives, as well as outlining the positives. Mrs Craig was understanding, welcoming and kind. The care and commitment from Mrs Craig did not stop after her operation, Mrs Craig made a clear effort to contact the next of kin after the operation, as well as visiting my Mum on the ward a number of times. It is clear Mrs Craig truly cares for the physical and mental welfare of all her patients. Without the help, advice and care from Mrs Craig and Tracey (who has been available to talk to during our times of need and distress), my Mum and I would not have managed as well as we have over the past few weeks. Although my Mum has been unlucky to receive a diagnosis of bowel cancer, I truly feel she was lucky to have been placed under the care of Mrs Craig - she clearly is a ‘superwoman!!’ Thank you Mrs Craig - I will be forever grateful.

I was dealt with quickly and can not fault my care, through out and how thorough all the investigations were. The only thing was the letter arrived after my consultation which would have freed up Mrs Craig to see another patient

Mrs Craig gave me honest straight forward and clear information about my diagnosis and treatment every step of the way through my journey, she listened to my concerns and answered all of my questions, even if I asked the same one several times !! At no point did I feel rushed or " just a number ".
