Following the surgery, Malcolm was in hospital for three months before being discharged.

He said: “From getting into that ambulance at home, I dont really remember much at all.

“It was almost like I thought it was happening to Norris Cole, like a soap opera about the NHS.”

Speaking at an event at Blackpool Victoria Hospital to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the NHS, he added: “I want to thank these people who were strangers to me but to whom I owe my life.

“Its wonderful to meet them and a bit emotional to be reunited with the people who I never met, here today.”
