Posted by magnum (as ),
I would like to congratulate you on the worthy staff at Calderdale Royal.
I was admitted to the Respiratory ward C5 in late December from the MAU. I am told that I quickly became very ill and it is due entirely to the vigilance and knowledge of the nursing staff that I was dealt with speedily and efficiently.
The Doctor actually told my wife to expect the worst which indicates my condition at the time. I then spent a few weeks in their wonderful care.
Therefore, I am pleased to applaud the NHS at Calderdale and to show, through you, my deepest felt thanks to all staff on C5 from the ladies who serve the excellent meals and domestics who are most cheerful and efficient, to the nurses and doctors that administer such care and patience.
I would ask that they be made aware of my comments and that all should have a mention of this notation placed on their personal files please.
I would add that this is not a one off experience. I was very ill about 5 years ago and spent 3 weeks at Calderdale Royal when again they were excellent. I am also in a position to draw comparisons as prior to this, I spent about 3 weeks in Huddersfield where I will in future absolutely refuse to be sent.
