Letter: Well done the NHS.


I RECENTLY entered Calderdale Royal Hospital for knee replacement surgery. It must be said that prior to admission I had some misgivings in view of adverse comments voiced in some quarters about the NHS.

In the event I need not have had any such worries because after an unexpectedly short three day stay in Ward 8B the treatment I received was second to none.

Not only was the operation completed efficiently and quickly by the consultant Mr Chakrabarti, the follow up care by the sister and her nursing team was simply brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble for them.

The well decorated, light and airy four bed ward together with the cheery disposition of all the staff resulted in a comforting and relaxing environment and this, in as much as it was possible considering the circumstances, made my stay an enjoyable experience.

Last but not least since my discharge from hospital, the Rehab at Home team have continued the excellent and caring service.

I hope the contents of this letter go someway to allaying fears which anyone may have who is scheduled to go into the CRH.
