Dave Richards Six years ago I spent a lengthy period in ICU/DCC between Leicester Glenfield and Gloucester Royal. When I awoke from a four week coma, confused and scared, Dr Twigg was always on hand to re-assure me and explain my treatment and progress with sensitivity. Through a dark period, I always felt safe under his watch and I'm sure that benefitted my recovery. Thank you Dr Twigg and congratulations on a well deserved nomination.


The details of 34 patients on the Guiting Ward were found on the pavement

Nicola Hayward I love how someone has found this document and ran to the press with it. Probably some poor nurse has unknowingly lost this out of their uniform pocket, completely by accident, and will be totally mortified by this. Whilst it's not ideal, it clearly is an accident.
