Yesterday, I had a minor accident in which I cut the top of my head. As the bleeding showed no sign of stopping, and as I am a pensioner, living on my own since the death of my wife four years ago, I decided to take myself to the hospital A&E Department. Within 10 minutes of my arrival I was seen by a happy, smiling reassuring nurse who checked my vital signs, dealt efficiently with my wound and sent me on my way with plenty of advice as to what to do in the next few days. What a contrast to the tales of woe with which we are continually bombarded! I take as I find, and as far as I'm concerned I have nothing but praise for our NHS, Good Hope Hospital, and its A&E Department
