In this period of celebration for 60 years of the NHS, I would like to add my voice. I had an accident just before Christmas and was hugely impressed by the care and support I received, from the paramedics who picked me up from the roadside, the doctors and nurses who treated me during the five days I was in the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital, and the physiotherapists at Exmouth Hospital who have helped me recover over the last six months. And all of this was free at the point of use - what a fantastic service we get! I am very grateful to all those who helped me through this painful time and proud that we have a system which enables everyone to get treatment, regardless of their income or status.Barbara Mason,9 St Sevan Way, Exmouth.
