"Excellent care at the JR!"

About: John Radcliffe Hospital

Anything else?

I am writing to thank the staff at the John Radcliffe Hospital for the excellent care that I received during a 24-hour stay on Monday and Tuesday 4 and 5 February.

On the Monday afternoon I suffered what turned out to be a bout of transient global amnesia in my local gym, and was brought into the JR’s A & E department and subsequently transferred to the stroke unit for observation. This was the first time in my fifty-eight year old life that I had ever been in an NHS hospital.

The ambulance paramedic was solicitous; the physicians in A&E and the consultants on the stroke ward were polite, friendly, and careful in their communication; and the nurses, catering staff, and porters were remarkably cheerful and helpful.

An NHS institution, where all the signs pointed to good staff morale and corporate ethos.
