"can't thank you enough"

About: Royal Preston Hospital

I went onto ward 3 for a tonsilectomy 6 days ago every single member of staff introduced themselves made me feel at ease as I was nervous and ensured I was comfortable, after the operation I was taken to another ward but reassured any problems to ring the ward back, so this morning (day 6) I literally couldn't speak, eat, drink basically I was a mess my mum rang the ward who were extremely helpful and suggested I got in to see the or doctor, I got there and withing 30 min the doctor was called to assess me, whilst waiting every staff member who passed me asked if I need anything, was I ok, reassured me I would be ok, as a nurse in training myself I truly look up to these professionals who do an amazing job 24/7 thank you so very much for your help
