I had been suffering from diarrhoea and sickness for 7 days and was given some antibiotics from my local Oxted health centre on Friday 16th august but they didn't work and on Sunday 18th August I was feeling really ill so I phoned for an ambulance. I can remember the paramedics coming to my flat and put me in the ambulance but I cant remember any more until waking up in the ICU ward on Tuesday 20th August.The nurses and my 4 children told me what had happened and that I was very lucky to still be here. I must say a big thank you to all your staff and the Ambulance crew for looking after me on that Sunday and to all the staff in the ICU ward you were wonderful and so caring I cant thank you enough for all you did for me.I am back at home now recovering and feeling stronger each day.Our local paper the Surrey mirror seems to like publishing stories about how bad the hospital is please feel to show them this letter and if you want to phone me you don't deserve all the bad press you get so thanks again to you all Brian Baldwin bed 10 in the ICU ward
