"long stay in East surrey hospital"

About: East Surrey Hospital

(as the patient),

I spent three weeks in hospital spending my time on Holmwood ward where the nurses were so caring, friendly and nothing was ever a problem. The care I received was fantastic and I was very sad to leave as I made so many friends.

The nurses would regularly take me out to the shops or down into the hospital gardens and they always put a smile on my face.

A big thank you to the following:

Kerri- always a smile on her face and I will never forget the time in WHSmith with the balloon stand.

Jane- for all the trips out and for introducing me to her friends and being so caring.

Ruth- always making me smile with your jokes will never forget them

Elise and Kat- always being so bubbly, friendly and welcoming and looking out for me.

Mary- Thank you for all the chats and hugs and comfort.

Thank you to Lynsey, Kate and Jenny always making sure I was ok.

A big thank you to all the staff on Holmwood Ward for making my stay pleasant and comfortable

Thank you

Dear Micheller

Many thanks for taking the time to post your comments - it is lovely to hear such postive feedback about the care you received during your three week stay. I will make sure these are passed on to the nurses on Holmwood Ward as I know they will appreciate them.

Thanks you again
