"My stay in QMC"

About: Queen's Medical Centre Queen's Medical Centre / Ear, Nose and Throat

(as the patient),

Mr David Grant operated on me for larynx cancer last July. I spent quite a long time in C25 and the staff can only be described as brilliant. The staff of the HDU were also excellent before I was sent back to the ward.

You don't go into hospital to enjoy yourself, but the nurses made everything as enjoyable as they could be under the circumstances. I have been in C25 for short stays, several times over the past 11 years and have always found the nurses to be first class. If I had to go back into hospital, I cant think of a better place I would rather be.

Response from Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust

Thank you for your kind words, Ken. I will share them with all of my colleagues on ward C25, I am certain they will appreciate hearing the difference they have made to your times with us over the years. I hope you are now recovering well, but if you do ever have to return to our hospital, I am sure you will experience the same high standard of care.

Ward Manager, C25

Thank you for your response Sue. When I come in for my checkups, I always drop by the ward. See all the old staff and meet the new, they can see for themselves I have put on weight and I'm doing alright.

I can speak good enough to hold a conversation, except on the phone. Special regards to my favourite dinner lady, who always had a kind word for me. Yet in all the time I was in the QMC, I never ate any solid food and I went home with a PEG.

Best Wishes to you and all the staff of C25
