Medical notes
 

When we met with a doctor I was incredibly impressed by the care she showed my father. She explained in a very friendly manner the tests and possible treatment once the results were available. All the staff we met were very friendly and certainly put us at ease.

I can truly say I have always been provided with the highest patient care. All the staff have been outstanding and shown me empathy, dignity and support. There is an ethos at this hospital that stands out. I have total confidence in the staff that have treated me. Its a credit to all the staff.
