Standard of care
11:12am Wednesday 11th July 2012 in Letters
Sir, Having recently spent several days in the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, recovering from a bout of pneumonia, I have had time to reflect on the standard of care I received from all the staff I encountered from emergency admission to discharge.
The demands on the NHS and its professionals are often huge, but without exception their expertise and efficiency was of a very high standard.
As an acute admission, I was placed in a ward with many sick and aged patients and my impression was that the staff treated those in their care with dignity and patience.
I am particularly grateful that when hospital care is most needed, the NHS and its staff fulfil their role so splendidly, often under very difficult circumstances.
