Medical team been outstanding with our son who has been taken in. Currently working from a suprisingly comfortable camp bed next to him while the staff look after us. They really do a wonderful job. Just wanted to say thank you. Is there a way of submitting feedback so individuals get praise from thier manager ?

A bit personal but I'd like to thank the lovely NHS staff at Chelt General Hospital (Endoscopy) this morning for their kindness during not the most dignified of procedures I've ever endured lol. We did have a laugh believe it or not and I've the all clear which is very reassuring. I can now say I've seen inside my bowels and according to the Doc it is beautifully healthy - certainly fascinating to watch 😂😂😂
