@gloshospitals Currently sat in Costa at GRH, watching your fantastic 'ladies in red'. They really are wonderful volunteers!! :-)

What's the point in me turning up in good time for an appointment when you're ALWAYS running 30-60 minutes late, @gloshospitals?

In hospital yet again. Though have been moved back to draconian Cheltenham general from south mead lucky to have 4g

Nurses and Dr's have all been amazing though couldn't ask for better care at CGH .
