"Thank you all with all my heart"

About: The Royal Victoria Infirmary / General surgery

(as the patient),

Ward 36 RVI

In September 2012, I was admitted to ward 36 at the RVI Where I had a ten hour subtotal Esophagectomy operation, Perform by the consultants and their fantastic caring team.

I was in hospital for 19 days and always taken care of by dedicated, caring, professional staff.

In fact they made me feel they were only there for me, although they never stopped for a moment

I honestly don't know how they got the energy to keep going.

If I had paid a million pound I could not of had a better quality of care from going into hospital and coming.


It's been two years now, and without this operation I would not of been here to write this note.

At 75 years old now I feel fitter and healthier than I have felt for years.

I owe my life to this wonderful dedicated caring team.

So I can't put into words how I really feel an appreciate what you have done for me.

So thank you Thank you all with all my heart
