AS there have been so many reports of people complaining about waiting time, food and treatment, amongst other things, at Frimley Park Hospital, I felt I must write a note of appreciation concerning my recent stay in Ward 9.

The care and attention I received both before and after my operation left little to be desired. The staff, with their kindness, managed to maintain 100% effort even though they were overworked and under-staffed.

If anyone deserves pay rises it's these people.
