Dear Rob

Thank you for taking the time to share your recent experience of the care you received from the teams in our Emergency Department, Cath Labs and also Torcross Ward. As we make every effort to provide the highest standard of care and treatment at all times, it was lovely to read your positive comments of praise about our staff and also the paramedic team who assisted you.

I will ensure a copy of your post is shared with the teams involved in your care. Comments of support and thanks are so important to our staff and I know they will be very grateful to read your positive comments.

I hope you are feeling much better now and recovering well at home.

With best wishes
