I ATTENDED the West Suffolk Hospital for an out-patients appointment last week. After hearing very negative reports of treatment received there I was amazed at how different it was for me.
I have always had a fear of hospitals but I was called in exactly on time and the doctor and his nurse quickly put me at my ease. The doctor had time to listen to me and carried out my examination with care and kind words.
I now have no fear of going back for a follow-up appointment.
I do hope we can stop knocking our local hospital. As far as I am concerned we are very lucky to have these caring professionals so near.
