"Thank you for kindness and reassurance"

About: Queen Victoria Hospital / Orthodontics

(as the patient),

I have had reason to visit the QVH on three ocassions with problems regarding my mouth. I had naturally thought the worse was happening to me regards "cancer" etc.

I was very very impressed with all the staff from the receptionists to my consultant. All managed to calm me down (as I have a fear of hospitals) and after some tests they were able to tell me that I need not worry.

Thank you again QVH for being kind, courteous, and taking into account how I felt on the day.

Dear Nicolle I felt I had to do it, so many negative reponses have been made about the NHS etc.

Heaven forbid that I need to come to the QVH in the future but if I do I know I will be treated with dignity, and kindness. Thankyou.
