IN THIS current era of ‘complaints’ and ‘litigation’ against the public services, and hospitals in particular, I felt it necessary to write this letter in recognition of the care I received on 4/2 at Nevill Hall Hospital, during a recent illness.

From cleaning to catering staff through to nurses and medics, their professionalism, dedication and hard work was indeed above and beyond the “call of duty”.

They reassured, comforted and supported me and my family through a very difficult and worrying time. I will be eternally grateful to each and every one of them.

To say “thank you” seems so inadequate for the care, kindness and attention I received.

Their kindness will last me a lifetime.

Many thanks to you all and God bless.
