"Super staff"

About: Dewsbury & District Hospital

The time I had to spend on the coronary care ward was made as good as possible by the lovely nurses, doctors, cleaners etc. All did their best even though the threat of this service going to Pinderfields looms over their heads. I was made to feel like a person not a number and although they were rushed off their feet found time to have a talk and laugh with us. There were breachers occurring during my stay but these were down to various management lapses and not to the ward staff who were left to cope as best they could. My one gripe was to have better organised facilities for morning ablutions, luckily I could get up and about. The food was tasty and appetising and I would recommend the soups. Thank you all for making a scary time bearable and at times quite funny. Finally I must thank the ambulance paramedics and staff in A & E who treated me with the same care and consideration.
