"A&e and wards"

About: King's College Hospital (Denmark Hill)

What can I say, from sitting indoors on a Friday night with family to being dropped into a living hell when my wife fell downstairs breaking her back, neck and ribs. My experience of my whole NHS has been Stirling. My wife was transferred to Kings where for the past 2 weeks I have watched all the staff work tirelessly to help my lovely wife recover from this ordeal,many times they have been obviously grossly understaffed.but have endeavoured to provide professional care whilst under extreme pressure always approachable nothing is to much trouble also I would like to mention that no matter the age of the patient be it 19 or 90 all are treated with such empathy and respect it is so reassuring to see,I visit every day so over the weeks I have sat and watched often young male and female nurses go about there daily work routine and I have the utmost admiration for them all,from the beginning of this living hell to hopefully soon the end,to everyone who has helped my wife,myself,my daughter,son,and wider family we truly thank everyone of you for what you have given back to us the most important thing to me my wife and the kids there mum. Please excuse grammar
