"Many, many thanks"

About: Churchill Hospital

Anything else?

This letter comes with my very real and sincere thanks.

Over the past month or so I have visited the Churchill hospital on a number of occasions culminating in a two day stay in the Urology ward to undergo surgery.

I would like to tell you how hugely impressed I am with regards to a quite remarkable organisation. I was met with nothing but politeness, compassion, cheerfulness and professionalism. The spirit of quiet comradery and efficiency that filled the Urology Ward – I shall never ever forget.

In particular I would like to pass my personal thanks to a particular nurse on the ward. He could not have been kinder and more considerate. Nothing was too much trouble for him and he went to enormous efforts to make sure every need was looked after and, at the same time, did so with genuine friendliness and professionalism.

Thank you once again for an experience of which I shall always remember with admiration and deep appreciation.
