"Me and the NHS - and the angels"

About: East Surrey Hospital / General surgery Queen Victoria Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

3 years is not enough to explain how the NHS is. In my opinion, it has the best in medical procedures and care.

It has been exceptionally good to me, from my troubled birth to my present age of 63. I have endured many bouts of deadly and incurable cancer, and underwent much treatment no matter the cost. The NHS has many times saved my life.

Then throughout the years I suffered heart attacks and added a double pneumonia, and there was other traumatic times. The NHS has almost all that time been overwhelmingly helpful and remains untouchable in the dedication to patients, to which many of us owe our lives.

My case can only promote the doctors and nurses and those assisting the treatment and care of us - to be magnificent and their dedication and training second to none. If anything, I may have a complaint that is a widespread one: the waiting times.

But there again some things are necessary. I understand priorities and other matters come into play and are seldom explained.

Those who know this dedication, if ever heaven exists, will be there - bright and angels all.
