"Hard working staff."

About: Pilgrim Hospital

I was an emergency admittance through a blood test and an out of hours dr. As soon as I arrived at a&e I was signed in and taken to assessment cubicle then on to a ward. I spent 8 days in hospital, the care I received was marvellous, nothing was to much trouble, I was on ward 7 which was always busy, but all the staff where happy, smiling, and so willing to help. I am writing this because I am fed up of hearing people moan about Lincolnshire hospitals, in March this year I had 3 weeks in Lincoln hospital through a heart attack and having a stent fitted,then in June this year I had 8 days in pilgrim. I had a very low blood count and needed 5 blood transfusions.In my opinion both hospitals deserve 100% praise. Each and every staff member I had contact with gets 100% praise from myself. This is my way of saying thank you, I would not be here today if it was not for skill & care of both hospitals.

Thank you again.

Dear Mr Hoyland,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write and to tell us of your positive experience.

I work with the staff of 7a and I believe that they are a very dedicated and compassionate team. It is lovely to have this confirmed by patients who have been cared for on the ward.

I have passed your gratitude on to Sister Hulley and her staff and they are very grateful for your kind words of thanks.

With our very best wishes for you continued health
