Inspirational health care

Hardly a week passes without the media highlighting a story of alleged mismanagement or bad practice at NHS hospitals.

Hardly a week passes without the media highlighting a story of alleged mismanagement or bad practice at NHS hospitals.

After 75 years without serious health problems, I have just returned home from my first ever stay in hospital at the Royal Devon and Exeter.

From the diagnosis of a probable stroke at Exmouth Hospital, the journey by ambulance in the hands of a paramedic recently returned from TA Service in Afghanistan, to the highly professional treatment of the superb staff in the A and E Dept, the Emergency Medical Unit and Clyst Ward Acute Stroke Unit, I cannot praise them highly enough. The skill and dedicated care shown in the treatment of patients suffering very serious disabilities was extraordinary and very inspiring.

I feel very privileged to have spent time in their hands and I thank them all.
