‘We would like to express our thanks and gratitude’

I have just spent 5 days in your care, arriving on 17th March as an emergency after suffering a stroke while on holiday in Tyndrum. The emergency department quickly assessed the problem and I was swiftly treated with a clot busting drug. I was then transferred to intensive care where the welfare of myself and my wife was second to none especially at this traumatic time. We were allocated Dr Byrne who then looked after me throughout my stay here and then in the stroke unit.

We would like to express our thanks and gratitude to every member of the teams that we had contact with. All of the staff were extremely friendly, caring and professional from the domestic staff to Dr Byrne, who then followed up with a phone call to our home checking we had returned home with no issues.

I would appreciate if this could be highlighted to Dr Byrne and his team on the stroke unit.

Yours extremely gratefully

Philip Strong, Northumberland.
