"Gara ward"

About: Friarage Hospital Site

I was admitted to Gara ward at North Allerton for a minor operation on my ankle. And I was amazed especially after all the hype and pulling down of the NHS, My stay was made comfortable and relaxing after my opp and this was down to all the staff from the cleaners and all ward staff nurses, doctors, physio department and consultants the dinner lady. I did think that I was going to see unhappy staff because of the way the staff are treated by our government, but no they were always smiling and cheerful and all ways professional. I would like to say to all the staff at Gara ward and at North Allerton a very big thank you. X From Jeff Smith bed 12, Gara ward.
