A kind message
We received this message from Stephen Rhodes on 16 November 2023:
“My wife had cause to visit you for the second time in an emergency having sustained her second detached retina in 18 months. Thanks to your excellent service and fantastic prompt response, she has made a full recovery and feels that her eyesight has gone back to how it was before the retina detached. Not only have you repaired two detached retinas for her, you have dealt with the cataracts in each eye as well. People are only too quick to complain about some of the care they receive through the NHS but without your prompt action and the skilled doctors and nurses who looked after her, she would be blind. I cannot thank you enough for everything you have done.”
Thank you Stephen; we have forwarded your very kind message to the hospital manager who has shared it with the staff concerned.
