Thanks to all at Wil­liam Har­vey

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Points Of View -

I have just re­turned home from a week in ‘L’ ward at the Wil­liam Har­vey Hospi­tal.

Hos­pi­tals of­ten get a bad press but I only have praise for this well run and friendly ward. All staff were kind and help­ful and un­der­stand­ing and noth­ing was too much trou­ble for them.

The cooked meals (avail­able on re­quest) were ex­cel­lent with a good choice and hot. Lots of free drinks through­out the day. The ward floors were cleaned at least twice a day.

Pa­tient dig­nity was well ob­served. All staff were very pro­fes­sional. How­ever I did have to wait seven hours for the am­bu­lance to come and take me to the hospi­tal re­sult­ing on a large com­pres­sion bruise on my but­tocks.

I also had a two-and-a-half-hour wait for the am­bu­lance to take me home. The am­bu­lance staff, how­ever, were very pro­fes­sional and help­ful. Well done WHH ‘L’ ward. My sin­cere thanks to all staff in­volved. Well done! John Wig­more, Ken­ning­ton
