Sorry to hear that you have been unwell with your diabetes but thank you for sharing you kind words about Blaze. I was very pleased to hear how helpful he was and how he managed to get that drip in first time, I know from personal experience that's not always an easy thing for someone to do.

I would love to share your kind words with Blaze - however in such a large organisation as ours - it may be hard to locate who to share this with. If you would like to share your thanks officially, we would be pleased to take the details either by phone: 0345 112 6500 or by email: patient.experience@nwas.nhs.uk and then we would be able to identify the staff member involved.

Thank you once again for taking the time to share your experience with us on Patient Opinion.
