I had a prolonged stay starting with a mystery infection which at first seemed like flu - I never had a chance to thank the "Shropdoc" doctor who recognised it was something more. Turned out to be a severe liver infection and I had a chance to enjoy the accommodation for a whole month. This happened just 2 weeks after my first child had been born, but the hospital were so accommodating allowing my family to visit me even out of visiting hours. The nurses on what was ward nine were so friendly and kind and caring, even though I was cluttering up their ward for so long! There was a violent patient during my stay, which terrified me in my helpless state, but they posted three security guards on him and all was good. In my view, the staff of this hospital are amazing at identifying and dealing with whatever comes along - and in a manner where basic human decency and kindness can come before rigid rules.
