I had an accident tiling a bathroom and got a free taxi (ambulance) to york district hospital to repair my severe right wrist. With so many negative stories about the NHS in the media I felt I wanted to balance things out, to some degree, with a truly positive one.
From the minute the ambulance was called to my follow up appointment today I have nothing but praise for the unbelievable professionalism and attitude everyone from the cleaners to the surgeon (dr p lim) showed me in york district hospital. This includes all the staff on follow up appointments (Mr Barboro - physio) and all the admin staff.
In terms of how I felt, well I was severely injured, was going to miss my only holiday (golfing) of the year in ten days time yet instead of feeling sorry for myself I marvelled at how well I was treated.
10 days later I returned with 2 large boxes of Thornton chocolates for everyone on the ward to share and so I could express my gratitude to them all.
