"Dedicated caring staff"

About: Good Hope Hospital

I was very impressed by the calm caring and friendly atmosphere the nurses created in this Unit, while I was there. They responded to an elderly patient who had been sick with kindness and efficiency. I would love some of the ministers and managers who pontificate on efficiency and enforce a policy, often driven by costs, to spend a few hours doing these jobs. It may give them a sense of what is really important.

Can I please ask you to contact me so that I may obtain some more information about the ward you are referring to? I am sure that the ward manager and nursing staff would really appreciate being made aware of your observations as a visitor!
