"Life changing"

About: The Royal Victoria Infirmary

Im writing this review whilst I await my fathers recovery,

I felt I needed to express my thanks and gratitude to the doctors and nurses at the RVI for all their work in saving my father and great nephews life.

My father was involved in a car accident that killed my mother and 29 year old neice, my father had serious injuries to his legs, hip and ribs. The doctors explained that he was lucky to survive with the injuries he sustained.

When you're families lives are hanging in the balance and your faced with the possibility of loosing them, its the doctors you pray to, its them that save lives and its the RVI ward 18 intensive trauma unit that saved what is left of my family. I was the first person to criticise doctors /nurses pay and was actually in favour of Great Britain getting rid of the NHS! Believe me when I say, its not until you need them that you fully realise their importance.

Not only do they care for the patients they also took care of me too as they knew I was grieving for my mum and neice but also desperately staying strong for the surviving family.

All I can say is thank you from the bottom of my heart. I will never be able to repay you but please know you are all really appreciated.
