fantastic care


I spent five days on ward 3A. There i was treated so well by all of the staff and domestics, the ward was clean and tidy the food was tasty and lots of it. Nothing was too much trouble for the healthcare assistants or nurses. thankyou all for my wonderful care. James groombridge.

Many Thanks to all the Neurology team 

Hi Folks, I had a hard bump on the head back in February and spent time in A&E plus a few days on ward 6A. I was very impressed with the professionalism, care and good humour of consultants, doctors and nurses, caterers, volunteers all. They did a wonderful job of looking after me and other patients on the ward who had much more severe conditions. Subsequently I've had great follow up from the wider team, notably physiotherapy and psychology and am getting back to work and life generally slowly but well. Please pass on my thanks to everyone for helping me and my family and friends through this. Many Thanks, Steve.
