I must declare an interest in Bedford Hospital as my wife has been and remains a member of the Nursing Staff for almost 30 years. Her position as a staff member does not influence by below comments.
As a result of an RTA on Saturday 2nd January 2020 I suffered severe injuries having been hit by a car at speed that failed to see that I was parked and getting something out of the trunk. I was squashed between both cars.
From arrival at A & E followed by detailed investigation that resulted in 4 hrs surgery by Dan Arvinte to a stay of 5 days on Howard Ward, ALL staff were absolutely superb. This comment relates to Medical Staff - whether Surgeons, Doctors, Anaesthists, Nurses, Nursing Assistants, Student Nurses, Ward Management, Housekeeping Staff, Catering Staff and Porters.
David Carter should be proud of the team that has been built at Bedford Hospital and residents of the catchment area served by Bedford Hospital should realise, and be grateful for, the quality of the facility provided by the NHS.
