"Thank you!"

About: Good Hope Hospital / Accident & emergency

A huge thank you to Good Hope Hospital

Our whole family would like to thank everyone who helped to save our Grandad, John. This is a Grandad who never stops. He will take you to swimming/rugby/dancing, fetch shopping, cut your grass, paint your house, fix your toilet, walk your dogs, collect you from distant places, despair at some of your decisions but always give you a hug, tell you to "get a grip", get Calpol, the list goes on and on. We do not know what we would do without him, he is so precious and we love him very, very, very much.

We were treated with such kindness and skill at Good Hope Hospital in every department we needed. A&E, Ward 17, Operating Theatre, ITU, Ward 16, micro-biology, X-ray/scanning, the porters. From senior management, everyone behind the scenes to those in the frontline we know that your organisation, teamwork, expertise and dedication has saved our Grandad's life. We brought him home last week and have the opportunity to give him the tender loving care he deserves.

We simply cannot thank you all enough!
