What I liked

While on holiday in Ripon I took ill and was taken to Harrogate Hospital. The treatment I received firstly in A & E and then the nurse on Fountains Ward and lastly Jervaulx ward was fantastic. Nothing was a bother to the Nurses and Doctors. I would like to send them all a very Big Thank You keep up the good work.

Many thanks

Betty Howe
