One response to “UHMBT to crown its Health Heroes”

  1. James says:

    I am pleased to learn of UHMBT are planning to hand out rewards to staff. I have seen some of the above staff during my stays in Lancaster Royal Infirmary on eight occasions since April 2016.

    However, from my experience, I believe that all doctors, nursing and ancillary staff should receive an award for the dedication and care they provide to patients. I cannot praise the staff more in A & E, the AMU, and Coronary Care. The food was better than I’ve had in a pub lunch and some hotels.

    My grateful thanks to you all.

    Dr Jim
