I was on the one hand really sad to read your story but on the other really pleased; sad because your holiday was ruined on day 1 but pleased because your dad and you as a family received such good care. Thank you for feeding back to us - the staff on SEAU and Greetwell will be really pleased to read it too. I hope your dad is now fully recovered - please pass on our best wishes. Thank you again - and I hope you manage a new holiday sometime soon.
