"This hospital changed my life and my family's"

About: William Harvey Hospital

Anything else?

This hospital became my second home for at least 7 to 8 months , and I got to know everyone from porter to matron to bed manager , I had a lot of pain and my kids suffered so much but from my first visit in June to the end of my illness this year 25 Jan 13 I cannot thank this hospital enough , nearly everyone try's so hard and puts in more then a days work at William Harvey , they cared for me when I was in pain , they diagnosed me and operated on me ( mayor surgery ) all in a matter of 7 to 8 months and I was far from an easy patient ....... Matron will agree .......lol

Thank you so much for taking time to provide us with positive feedback, staff are always pleased to hear when their care has been appreciated. I will let Matron know and I am sure she will pass on the message to ward staff.

I hope you continue to recover fully from your illness.
