They literally saved my life and continue doing so. I cannot praise highly enough the excellent standard of care I have received. From the transport office to the clinic and ward staff, there has been nothing short of the highest standard of delivery of service in the most friendly and affirming atmosphere.
They have given me four extra years of life in which I have seen my grandchildren born and another one due soon. What more could anyone ask.
