"Exceptional care"

About: Royal Derby Hospital

I wish to thank Derby Royal for making me well again. I arrived late Thursday night with very high blood pressure and did not return more than a week later. I cannot tell you how well the hospital staff looked after me, the food was fab, the care, the wards - thank you to all the doctors and nurses, porters etc however particularly thanking you to Ward 402 - they made me well and nothing was too much trouble,. Thanks to the cleaning staff that kept it so wonderfully clean and the staff on DVD fast forward ensuring we all were fed in a timely fashion laughing all the way. Thanking you.
