Nei­ther. This photo by Toby Van de Velde is in fact an old sur­plus lifeboat, now in use as a home on The Grand Union I AM one of those who greatly ap­pre­ci­ated the ar­ti­cle and also very much ap­pre­ci­ated the Hilling­don Coun­cil for fly­ing the county flag – it warmed the heart – all part of our her­itage – well done!

in­ves­ti­ga­tion to try and al­le­vi­ate my prob­lem, hence my long stay, and keep­ing me in­formed.

The nurs­ing care was be­yond all my ex­pec­ta­tion, with most nurses be­ing kind, pa­tient, hard work­ing and so pro­fes­sional, which filled one with con­fi­dence and be­ing in safe hands. How they man­age to keep so cheer­ful and full of en­ergy at the end of a 12 hour shift is be­yond me.

They have to cope ev­ery day with dif­fer­ent pro­ce­dures for each in­di­vid­ual when doc­tors do their rounds, order­ing new med­i­ca­tion etc and man­ag­ing with nurses avail­able.

All the sis­ters on the wards work as part of a team, one made my bed on her own be­cause her nurses were busy else­where, as well as deal­ing with the end­less pa­per­work and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties.

Ev­ery­one should be made aware of the in­cred­i­ble job they all do 24/7.

They have the big thumbs up from me, along with a huge THANK YOU. The food is also much im­proved and served hot most days.
