"NHS angels live at the Friarage!"

About: Friarage Hospital Site

Anything else?

After a horrendous miscarriage I was admitted to the Friarage on Sunday 22nd September with my life basically hanging in the balance after losing so much blood. Unfortunately I cannot remember the names of those people involved in helping me but I know there were many. The male triage nurse I had was amazing and without his quick thinking I doubt I would have had the recovery I have. There are so many I wish to thank, porters, triage team, gynae doctors, surgeons, allerton ward and anybody else I may have forgotten... it feels like an endless list of people, but each one of them is the reason why i'm able to write this now. I owe my life to these wonderful skilled people and cannot thank them enough. Anybody going here will be in very safe hands!
