"Kings b ward ashford"

About: William Harvey Hospital

Anything else?

I have just left hospital following appendicitis operation, in the run up to my operation and aftercare I was admitted to kings b ward and I would just like to share with everyone how amazing my care from one member of staff was, Anything I or anyone else on my ward asked for was never a problem he would get it done and more immediately he constantly asked how everyone was and went beyond his duty of care to ensure everybody was well looked after. I was in extreme pain in hospital but he looked after me in such a caring way. I would make sure he knew what an amazing nurse he will make and that he is a true credit to the nhs, thank you so much for all my care x he was working on kings b on 7th and 8th October 2013
