Hospital staff were wonderful

I have recently been a patient at the Conquest Hospital for a nine-week stay.

I was under the expert care of Mrs Morris and her team, having undergone surgery.

I would like to thank the ITU/HDU team for their fantastic care, and the matron and her wonderful team of dedicated nurses on De Cham Ward.

I was very well looked after by all involved and thankfully now recovering at home.

I would also like to praise the housekeeping staff, and others involved in the team of physios and occupational therapists, for being patient with me during my recovery and getting me where I am today, at home.
