"i was admitted to A&E in Dec. ..."

About: Royal Bolton Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

i was admitted to A&E in Dec. 06 & within hours I was on a life support system. without the dedicated care of the A&E and ICU staff i would not be here. although my condition was very puzzling, they didn't give up. my care was very dignified, & although i was in a coma, told me everything that was going on. it is true that you can sometimes hear voices whilst in a coma, the care they gave to my family also was to the highest standard, i don't think they could have got through the ordeal without them. a special thank you to all worked so hard, & are my heros. the greatest achievement for them is that i now have another addition to the hopkins family, so not only did they save me, they made it possible for her life too.

What could be improved

the only improvement would be the christmas music!
