So say the young people and their parents who attend a regular speech and language therapy fluency group in Middlesbrough, run by South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust Speech and Language Therapy Department.

A UK team, led by consultants from the heart and lung surgery team at The James Cook University Hospital, gave up their holidays to take part in a life-saving mission to Ghana.

Patients undergoing surgery at the Friarage Hospital can now benefit from having the same nurse or operating department practitioner supporting them throughout their procedure. This means patients are with a familiar member of staff from the moment they go to sleep in the anaesthetic room to the moment they open their eyes in the recovery room.
