Miss Shirley has a compassionate and caring nature that I felt when she first attended me at Stoke Mandeville hospital. I am still under her care. I was, and still am facing a leg amputation just below the knee, but I want to fight to save it. My foot is severely traumatized following other surgery and infection, but she has listened to me and set up a an on antibiotics and dressings to give me the sporting chance to save my foot. I believe she is feels for her patients and I am blessed to have her as my tram leader looking after me. Her bedside manner was excellent, she is patient when bombarded with numerous questions and my wound following her surgery appears to be healthy and improving. She explains in detail what is happening and I am do confident in her appraisal and decisions do far.
