Letter: Your Say - NHS surprise Poor choice; In association with POST OFFICE.

Byline: John Speer

I HAVE just had my first experience of attending an NHS hospital for over 20 years.

For me it was in direct contrast to the many reports of mismanagement, incompetency and uncleanliness.

I attended the A&E unit of Selly Oak Hospital and was then admitted to the medical assessment ward.

I had blood tests and a CT scan within two hours of arriving at the hospital and the results of this half-an-hour later.

What I did find were clean wards, caring nurses, dedicated doctors and cheery ancillary staff returning to give my visitor a cup of NHS brew after all the patients had been served.

Older patients saying the food was good, but too much.

Finally a male national service nurse working on the ward telling us not to believe the negative things you read about the ward above us treating the Iraqi and Afghanistan war army victims.
