NHS brought my wife back

Glamorgan Gazette - - Your Views - Gwyn How­ells Maesteg

A LOT of peo­ple in Wales rub­bish the NHS. In July my wife fell down the length of our stairs into my stair­lift.

I phoned 999 and within 10 min­utes the am­bu­lance ar­rived to treat my wife and then a para­medic took over. They worked on my wife for over two hours and then took her to Mor­ris­ton Hospi­tal.

By the time my step-daugh­ter, neigh­bour and daugh­ter-in-law got to the hospi­tal my wife was in in­ten­sive care be­ing treated for two skull frac­tures, a bleed on the bone, two cheek frac­tures, a frac­ture in the sec­ond bone in her neck and mas­sive bruis­ing and was very near death.

Thanks to the wonderful treat­ment and care by all the staff at the hospi­tal, six weeks later she is sit­ting up in a chair at home wear­ing only a neck brace and on the road to a full re­cov­ery.

So to all those peo­ple who rub­bish the NHS, please think again. We think they are wonderful work­ers. God bless them all - doc­tors, nurses, am­bu­lance staff and all the back­room staff - they brought my wife, Mary, back to our fam­ily.
