"Care on the wards"

About: St Richard's Hospital

My husband is in Selsey Ward following a knee operation and was also,in HDU. I would like to praise the nursing staff on both these wards for their care and dedication not only of my eighty year old husband but also their concern for me. I have been worried and frightened by a reaction he had to the drugs and aenestthetic he had and became very confused and hallucinating but they were. so lovely and understanding and reassuring. Thank you all so much.
