I was very poorly when I was admitted to the acute receiving unit. I have been here three times in the last few weeks and each time I was treated swiftly and kept informed by Dr David Bell and his team. They reassured me, kept me informed of my treatment and what was happening next. When you are ill and pretty much helpless, this confidence from staff gives reassurance and has a calming effect, I can’t thank everyone enough.
I was then sent to Ward 5a and Ward 5c and I can only describe the staff there as absolute angels. Everyone from the people who served the meals, brought cups of tea, the nurses, the student nurses, the student doctors and the doctors. They treated me with dignity, respect and fairly cheered me up at a particularly miserable and frightening time in my life.
So I am sending my sincere heartfelt thanks to everyone working on the ward. Keep doing what you are doing... making people well again.
