"Great care taken of son"

About: Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital / Accident and emergency Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital / Gastroenterology

(as a parent/guardian),

Just wanted to pass on our sincere thanks to the doctors, nurses and staff of the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital.

Our 18 year old son was admitted to the hospital ar night in late September in acute pain. The next day he was operated on for a stomach ulcer. He recuperated at the hospital on Easton ward and then a general ward and was discharged after 5 days. He was visited daily by my family members (2 of whom are nurses) and they assured us that he was getting great care.

As anxious parents, we were both abroad (and still are) but were assured that he was in very good hands. On reflection, I don't suppose there are many countries in the world, or services like the NHS, where such great treatment and care is readily available.

Many thanks
