"I was one of the first patients ..."

About: John Radcliffe Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I was one of the first patients on the new Neuroscience ward back in Jan i was seriously ill and before i was in JR i was in MK hospital so when i came round i had no idea what was going on or where i was the staff were very polite and explained everything if i wanted anything it was done, going through Rehab getting me able to use my body again they were understanding and at first let me go at my own pace i never once felt degraded or helpless the staff were understanding and did everything they could to help me progress and recover from my illness. Although the doctures were not sure what it was that made me ill in the first place they still kept looking into my case and still kept me updated on all i had been through and made sure i had the facillities to recover outside of hospital and the support continued after i was let home

Anything else?

Just stillm a big thank you to the staff of JR as i feel without their understanding and encouraging i would still be struggling through now
