"I had a minor stroke"

About: The Princess Royal Hospital (Telford)

I was admitted to ward 16 the stroke ward following a minor stroke on 25 march 2014 staff especially the ward sisters on duty that evening was brilliant couldn't do enough for me. I spent 2 nights on the wards following tests and visits from doctors and physios the staff remained helpful and curation at all times the catering staff fantastic at meal times due to my intolerance to many foods nothing was to much trouble to find suitable food for me I can't fault the hospital wards staff or cleanliness I know I have to visit out patient departments soon to see a neurologist I just hope he or she is as pleasant as the others were. I just want to thank everyone on ward 16 for everything you all went beyond caring to help me on my way to getting better thank you all. If all the hospitals in the countries had staff from ward 16 there would never be any bad publicity about care. There is never enough good stuff said about our health professionals you only ever hear bad press...

Response from The Princess Royal Hospital

Dear Ammy1970 I am so sorry to hear that you experienced a minor stroke but really glad to hear that you were so pleased with the care you received from Ward 16 at the Princess Royal Hospital. I hope that your kind feedback about the team (doctors, nurses, Physio, catering) and the environment will be very reassuring to anyone else who may have a stay on the ward, and for the relatives and friends of people on the ward. Please accept my very best wishes for your forthcoming outpatient appointment. I will make sure that your kind words are shared with the team. Thank you Adrian Osborne Communications Director The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust
