I WOULD like to express my appreciation and thanks to all those who attended to me during my stay in the Alex Hospital for what I considered to be a vital operation.

I feel that I could not have received better attention even if I had paid privately.

Also, the meals were very adequate and of a high quality both in quantity and temperature making them very pleasant to eat.

I would also like to thank the theatre staff for their very professional expertise in making me feel relaxed and performing my operation leaving me with less pain than I had anticipated and hopefully the end result being completely successful.

Very many thanks to all for making my short stay at Redditch a very pleasant one.

A very grateful patient, Peter Cook.
