Anything else?

What a fantastic experience I had being in hospital! The staff on Gara ward and CDU were absolutely amazing during my 6 day stay on Gara ward and also when I had to go to CDU several times. Not only were the staff so kind, friendly, helpful and caring to me but they were so kind to my parents and my children. I can not praise them enough. Their patience was amazing too, with some very rude and arrogant patients who were in with me. They all deserve medals!!!
