"A Challenge, be better than the Cardiac..."

About: Darent Valley Hospital

RE. Heart Centre and Chestnut ward. Totally professional from top to bottom, my weekend stay was as good as it possibly could be, given my personal health concerns. Positive and caring every last one of them, if the rest of the NHS could get close to this lot newspapers would go out of business given they don't like good news. I know that nurses work long and hard hours but I noted that at least two nurses were studying further in their own time to improve their position. My thought was, does the hospital have study/library and computer facilities these nurses can access? study at home would often be difficult with family to contend with. The nurses I came across in the heart centre and Chestnut ward seemed fantastic but if they think they can do even better please help them in every way possible. Thank you all. Bob Alfrey.
