"Acute Stroke Ward 5 & Ward 11a"
About: Fairfield General Hospital Fairfield General Hospital Bury BL9 7TD
I wish to thank all the staff in ward 5 and 11a who looked after me with such kindness and expertise when I was admitted to Fairfield Hospital on the morning of 22 August 2014 after suffering a stroke. From my admittance to A&E and then to Ward 5 through to Ward 11a each member of staff from consultants, nurses, physiotherapists and all those support staff in their various disciplines each showed me such care and respect that whilst I was totally in their hands I felt assured that I was in the best place at this traumatic period in my life. I should also like to mention the helpful student nurses who were always sensed when I need help which I very much appreciated and another member of staff on nights who addressed everyone with a cheery “hello trouble” but to him it seemed no trouble at all. My recovery at home continues to improve thanks to the guidance and encouragement of the Stroke Team physiotherapists. A very big thank you to you all.
