"to commend the service I have received"

About: Nottingham West / Community stroke team

(as a staff member posting for a patient/service user),

I wanted to make contact to commend the service I have received post suffering a stroke a month ago and being discharged from City Hospital, Nottingham three days later. Emma (Physiotherapy) has been exceptional in helping me utilise the services available. I cannot describe how confident in the service she has made me and how quickly this has enhanced my recovery. I am a physiotherapist by trade myself and there are many skills she has both clinical and non-clinical I would genuinely love to poses myself.

It’s very easy for people to send negative messages about Healthcare in Britain but never send praise when it is deserved. In this case Emma, Natalie (OT) and Abi (Speech Therapy) have all gone over and above providing a brilliant service and making a massive difference in where I am at today. They do it with a smile and are great to work with putting patients at ease so they can achieve as much as possible in their rehab.

Everything they do is tailored to individuals needs and wants directing people back to normality asap. They answer all questions and are clearly very knowledgeable and professional in their approach.

They are an absolute credit to your service.

Thanks to all – I owe you all one massively!!!!!!!!!!!!!
