Patient quote

“To all the lovely nurses who took care of me during my stay in Ward 20, I would just like to say a very big heartfelt ‘Thank you’ for taking care of me and for all the reassurance you gave me, words cannot describe just how much this means to me as you know how terrified I was.  You all do such a wonderful job and I just wanted you to know how much I appreciated it.”
