"Thank you"

About: Glenfield Hospital

Anything else?

I recently spent almost 2 weeks at Glenfield, after being admitted with breathing difficulties. I required ECMO Treatment, and was placed in an induced coma and very ill.

For me, i don,t remember much, but my family, who visited daily, were treated with Kindness and Understanding. Nothing was kept from them (even the possibility that i could have died).

The care i received whilst asleep and after i woke was second to none,

Both the Dr,s and Nurse,s were amazing.explaining to me what was happening, even though i couldn,t talk , due to having a Tracheotomy.

For a time a had 2 x Nurse,s 24 hours a day, and they were all wonderful. Their care and dedication is what helped me begin the recovery process.

I am now home and recovering well, i cant praise the Hospital and all it,s staff enough.

So thank you from the bottom of my heart, for everything you did for me.
