This hospital is part of East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust.
In these times when one hears so many complaints about the NHS and its hospitals, I thought I should write you and give you some good news.
In mid August my wife was admitted to the William Harvey Hospital accident and emergency department for a cranial Cat-Scan. Business was brisk and the waiting times not short, but that is beside the point. Her condition was not an immediate life threatening emergency.
Eventually we saw a young doctor, Daniel Keown, and I must tell you that this young man is an exceptionally competent, patient friendly, and well organised medical physician.
I have no idea if he is regular member of staff or a summer locum but he is an asset to be cherished if he is.
One meets many people over a lifetime and develops a critical assessment of their character and competencies and it is always a pleasant surprise to witness excellence in action.
