I have just returned home from Ward 5 of Grantham hospital after major surgery. For me this has been traumatic since I have always enjoyed good health through a long life.
I wish, however, to pay tribute to the doctors, nursing staff and all other workers in Ward 5 for the wonderful care, respect, love and expertise that I received while there. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they all made every effort to keep me comfortable. My deep, deep thanks go out to all of them.
Grantham people should be proud of this magnificent institution. Any further mention of cutting this service must be resisted strongly. It is pretty obvious that the overpaid Trustees in their ivory tower in Lincoln are unaware of this fine hospital and it must be supported in full by us all.
