Dear patient.

Thank you for sharing your story with us. I am pleased to see you had such prompt treatment at what must have been a very worrying time for you, especially as you were in such pain.

I have shared your comments with the department manager and doctors, where they will be very much appreciated, and I hope you are now on the road to recovery.
