July 2014

Dear sir/madam

I wanted to write and express my gratitude and thanks to all the hospital staff that treated me when I was admitted to your hospital whilst holidaying at Burnham on Sea.

I was admitted via A&E on Tuesday 8 July with severe stomach pain and vomiting. The doctors and nurses that came into contact with both on A&E and on the Waterside Suite were amazing and I cannot thank them enough.

Each one of them was professional, but compassionate as well. Nothing was too much trouble for them and everything was explained to me as they went along.

The consultant was so nice and put me at ease, even though I was in a lot of pain.

You have staff to be proud of and unlike some hospitals we here about these days, are a credit to the NHS.

Special thanks to the nurses and chef on the Waterside Suite. It was nice to see a team that not only worked well but appeared to enjoy their jobs. In what must be a very difficult one at times.

Thank you all.

To all nursing staff, assistants, care staff, wonderful chefs, cleaners
Thank you so much for taking good care of me, your kindness and professionalism was much appreciated. You were all brilliant.

To all the staff
Thank you very much for your hard work and kindness for his recovery.

Dear Waterside
I would like to say how wonderful your nursing staff are; they certainly brought me through this one!

To everyone on Waterside
Thank you everyone!

Dear Sister
I am writing to say very many thanks to you and all your staff for a most “enjoyable” stay in Waterside. It seems strange to say enjoyable for a hospital stay when you have been operated on, cut and plastered, but that is the only way I can describe it! Due to your excellent staff, I am sure my recovery will be so much quicker. I cannot recommend them more highly. You have such an excellent team working with you with a very good atmosphere. Once again, many thanks for all your care and consideration.
Regards TH

To all Waterside
I want to send a very big thank you to everyone who looked after my mother – you were all wonderful, helping make such a dreadful time a little more bearable. I am also very grateful for being allowed to stay with mum for those first six nights and for us all to have such flexible visiting arrangements. I know this helped her get through it all. Another special thanks to the chef.
With much gratitude.

Dear Sister
I wish to thank everyone in the ward for the care and professional attention I have received during my two stays in Waterside ward. Your nurses were caring and attentive whilst I was with you, particularly during that first week in October. I have no hesitation in telling people that the standards of care and attention I experienced throughout the three months at Weston Hospital were second to none. Thank you for making my stays with you pleasant and comfortable.
Kind regards RS

To the staff on Waterside, I have arrived home from a lovely two days in your hospital, I felt I must write to thank you for all the care and friendliness you gave. I was terribly impressed when the chef came in and said ‘I know you, you had a hip operation here 12 years ago.’ !! What a memory. I was really sorry to leave, Yours Sincerely’

C. H.

We’d like to say a massive ‘thank you!’ to everyone who looked after us. It was a real comfort to A. A was in such safe hands and the care, support and friendliness didn’t falter for the entire 9 days!!! Thank you so much’ –

A. and J.B.

We know that you must receive dozens of letters of kindness, but this one is form our hearts. We would like to say a big ‘thank-you’ to all doctors, sisters, nurses and associates for looking after M whilst in your care. It is all so easy to knock the NHS after seeing a news item. It’s not until you see you all doing the job you love at close hand that you realise what caring, professional and dedicated people you all so obviously are. Thank you and best wishes.’

K.B, V.K.E and N & J.N

Dr John, the nursing staff and the support staff. A small gift to say a very big thank you for the medical and nursing care you gave my husband, J.B in January. We returned home with trepidation but J immediately began to improve and has continued to do so. I wish you could see him now. He looks a picture of health and we have gradually been able to return to the way of life that had become normal for us, before he needed hospital treatment. I am sorry this has taken so long, but there have been a few challenges along the way. Thank you so much from my daughter and me for not giving up on J. With sincere gratitude’

Just a line to thank you all for the care and kindness shown to me following my knee replacement last week (23/2). You all carried out your duties with cheerfulness however busy you were.

August 2011

Just wanted to say a big thank you to all the wonderful nurses who attended me recently. You are all truly lovely ladies and I very much appreciated your attentions.

P. G.

I would like to thank you and every one of your staff who cared for me. From the moment I arrived I was treated with courtesy and compassion at a worrying time. In particular, the nursing and catering staff went out of their way to look after me to the highest level possible. When I was feeling very ill and under the weather they did everything they could to deal with my problems and help me to remain calm. Please pass on my thanks to everybody. My husband also told me how much support he received when he was concerned about my progress. He greatly appreciated the time all the nurses spent in putting his mind at rest and explaining what was happening at different stages. He would like you to pass on his thanks to all staff as well.

Unfortunately I was not able to fully appreciate the food which was produced as I was not very hungry following the operation. However, the care that the chef took to try to find something appropriate for me was fantastic. Many thanks for making a difficult and worrying few days as pleasant and pain free as possible.

P. R.

To the team and all the nursing staff, thank you most sincerely for the wonderful care and patience.

A. M.

To all the nursing staff, chefs, domestics and everyone who made my stay with you so comfortable and for all the care and attention I received no matter what the time was. Will stay with me always. Thank you all so very much.

J. Y.

Nights were particularly hard so a big thank you to the night team. No one makes rice pudding like chef Jacqui! A big thank you to everyone on the Waterside team for your kindness and warmth during my recent stay. It was really traumatic to be separated from the family for so long, but your kindness made it a lot more bearable and you were all so lovely and welcoming to my visitors. It really made a HUGE difference to all of us.

L. S.

I spent four days as an NHS patient in the Waterside suite and I cannot praise the nurses there highly enough for the level of care they showed.

April 2011

I have recently received Botulinum injections to my armpits for acute hyperhidrosis. This treatment has proved to be extremely effective and I am absolutely delighted with the results – it has made such a difference to my day to day life and I feel so much more confident in carrying out my duties at work and am definitely less anxious about being out in public.

Mr Mundasad, who carried out the procedure, has been brilliant especially in directing me to the Hyperhidrosis Support website, which has given me information on how to deal with hyperhidrosis in other areas – this has allowed me to speak to others who have experienced similar problems and I now realise it is more recognised than I thought. I have also volunteered to take part in a research program in order to prove that this procedure is very effective and one which I believe can be life changing.

This is a very effective procedure; in my case the sweating has not stopped completely, but has reduced considerably to that of a “normal” person.

I would like to thank my GP and the Acting Operational Manager of the Waterside Suite for their help.
