"My Father is currently in ICU.He ..."

About: Royal Bolton Hospital

(as a relative),

What I liked

My Father is currently in ICU.He has been there since early December.Given his condition and age I decided to fly from Queensland Australia to Bolton to see him.

ALL the staff in ICU are a credit to their hospital as well as their chosen profession...never before have I witnessed such kindness and compassion(and thats a big statement...)...

Whilst all the nurses and their aids performed admirably, I feel I have to make particular reference to "Mike" whose generosity and kindness shown to both my Father and I shall not be forgotten...Thanks again Mike, you made what was a traumatic experience bearable...my faith in Mankind was restored because of the kindness shown.

Shmaltzy??Perhaps...but gee Bolton, you have an ICU to be REALLY proud of...

Thankyou again.
