THROUGH your letters column and after spending three weeks in the Royal Gwent Hospital I would like to thank all the dedicated staff for the wonderful care I received as a patient. Nothing was too much trouble for any of them, although they were under pressure with a full ward and very poorly patients. Thank you to everybody on Intensive Care, High Dependency, and D.2. West Wards without whose care I would not be here to write this letter of thanks.
