Healthcare: Credit to staff at hospital

I have just spent a few days in Scarborough Hospital after an operation. I would like to thank Mr Simon Hawkyard, his staff and everyone working on Ash ward for making my stay as comfortable as possible.

Their professionalism, efficiency and caring attitude was a credit to them and the hospital.

The NHS and hospitals have received a lot of bad press recently, so it’s only right that credit is given to the staff at Scarborough for the performance that I witnessed.

There may be problems with the NHS, but it is probably at top management and at political level. Certainly not with the staff.
