LETTER: Hospital staff deserves our thanks
I WRITE to you in the hope that you can make mention of the fantastic job the medical staff at the emergency department at Ipswich Hospital.
In the early hours of Boxing Day, it was necessary for me to attend the ED in extreme pain due to shingles.
Within minutes I was surrounded by nurses and a doctor, who quickly diagnosed the problem and administered the appropriate pain relief and medication.
Words cannot describe the professionalism and care I received from the doctor, and more so the nurses on that morning, considering they were nearing a late night shift on a public holiday.
I feel quite often, we the public, take the work these people do for granted.
Their names escape me, but they know who they are, I hope you can assist me through your paper and make mention of the job they do.
A big thank-you to that pleasant and professional group of people from an appreciative man on that morning
