"The Best Hospital I have ever experienced!"

About: James Paget University Hospital

The atmosphere was friendly and sociable, and the routine was fantastic -and steadfastly adhered to. Medication was on the dot at specific times - and at all times staff were caring and gentle. Laughter was in abundance, and it was very good to have the companionship of other patients on the ward. I was very happy there, in spite of my nasty accident and would like to thank the nurses for their compassion, which drew tears of relief from my eyes on arrival at the ward! My sincere thanks for an experiences which I was dreading - but which turned into a humorous, caring and most enjoyable experience! Oh! I must offer my extremely grateful thanks to the physiotherapist who explained to me i the corridor near the ward how to walk with the frame on wheels! I was afraid to let my right leg go backwards, because my hip was so painful , but they explained that I needed to take long strides and let my leg go backwards! I did as he explained, and it was amazing that the pain disappeared when I let my leg go back! I showed the ladies in the ward what he had taught me. Whoever is in charge - please accept my deep gratitude for the wonderful treatment and excellent Staff. I never expected to enjoy myself in hospital! Very best wishes, yours sincerely, Gillian Lyden PS! Thanks to your treatment I am now back at home, and learning to be independent! God Bless you all!
