"Ward 8 fantastic!"

About: Castle Hill Hospital

I was recently in room 6 on Ward 8 for a thr, the staff are absolutely brilliant,that includes cleaners,catering an medical.The problem is now becoming very apparent to patients, the NHS is seriously understaffed in all areas.There are junior doctors working seriously long hours without rewards.Nurses are thin on the ground and there are no signs of active recruiting.

We must do everything in our power to retain our NHS, it is an institution admired throughout the modern world.

Finally a massive thank you to all staff and support workers you are all doing a great job, which is not going unrecognized.
