On behalf of the staff concerned, TB, SD, JR and DC, I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your notes of thanks and the floral posies. They were all really pleased to receive such a thoughtful gift and personal thank you.

It means such a lot to the team here when patients express appreciation in such a unique way: we all like to know what it is about our skills that patients find most helpful and your comments will help us to develop our caring qualities. So thank you again.
