"From beginning to end the staff were superb"

About: Ripley Hospital

(as a relative),

My husband has recently had a triple by-pass and was brought into Ripley Hospital with a suspected stroke. From beginning to end the staff in the MIU were superb. They were calm and professional putting both my husband and myself at ease whilst dealing with his condition. All the staff worked with quiet efficiency and could not have been more attentive. The ambulance was called and we were quickly on our way to Derby Royal where a stroke nurse was waiting for us. I have only high praise for all my dealing with the staff in Ripley Hospital Minor Injuries Department and would take this opportunity to thank them for helping us through a most trying time. Well done all.
