"Excellence needs to be praised"

Anything else?

too many people are prepared to criticise the NHS. I feel that it is equally important to praise the NHS and its staff when applicable. The nurses that I saw at my Pre-op assessment were so welcoming and reassuring. Their professionalism gave me greater confidence to carry me through my intended operation. Well done the Queen Elizabeth. Oh! I could certainly criticise the building, it was certainly not designed by the people who organise the operation of the hospital. Too many very large pillars in the way in the waiting areas. If you sit the wrong side you will not hear your name being called.
