I slipped on a file that had been left on the stairs at home. The paramedic and ambulance staff arrived very quickly and were very kind, humerous and professional.
The A and E staff worked very efficiently and I remember through the pain relief (as they worked on the dislocation) being told that I was doing well, which really encouraged me.
The night staff on the ward worked extremely hard, the lower grades especially.
Nothing seemed to much trouble, and they remained kind and cheerful.
When I had a post op. query I rang Claire, the O. T, and although it was not strictly her job, she made some enquiries and was able to ring me back to reassure me.
