"Wonderful hospital"

About: Royal Brompton Hospital

I was taken to the RBH in April when my local hospital discovered a split aorta. I am sixty nine years of age and had never spent a night in hospital. All the staff including Doctors, Nurses are in my experience are the best you could get. They saved my life, nothing was too much trouble. I saw for myself how hard they work, with always a smile. If all hospitals reach this standard within the NHS, we are all in very safe hands. A big thank you to everyone which seems very inadequate to me who is back at home leading a near normal life.
