"Very grateful to dedicated staff at City Hospital and Lings Bar"

About: City Hospital campus / Trauma and orthopaedics Lings Bar Hospital

(as the patient),

My husband and I wish to thank all NHS staff concerned for the support they have given me relating to my hip operation at City Hospital between August and October. All aspects of the service were excellent. First of all, at City Hospital (Lister Ward 1) then at Lings Bar Hospital (Castle Ward), and lastly here at home.

The support involved physio and occupational therapy, nurse and carers and the Red Cross in providing the necessary equipment. The technical aspects of support were obviously important, but the manner in which it was provided - by clearly dedicated, understanding and caring staff - leaves a lasting impression.

We would be grateful if our comments could be made known to those involved - with our thanks and very best wished - indeed to the NHS generally - for a happy Christmas and a healthily successful 2013.
