(as the patient),

Taken by ambulance to Solihull Hospital on Boxing Day suffering from sickness, diarroea, high blood pressure.

I was seen immediately, examined thoroughly and kept in Ward 19 for five days. Excellent care at all times. Blood tests revealed dehydration and lack of essential salts. The food was very good.

My thanks and appreciation.
