LETTER: Caring and professional

Don’t ever doubt the dedication and professionalism of the NHS in Eastbourne.

My husband was unfortunate to have a very serious stroke before Christmas and had it not been for the whole team of paramedics, doctors, nursing staff, and care assistants, I am certain that he would not be here today.

The team in the East Dean and Sovereign Wards were without doubt the most caring and professional team you could ever wish to come across. Due to that team’s dedication, “Ted” has made a remarkable recovery three months on and the wonderful care and rehabilitation has continued under the Irvine Unit at Bexhill.

The NHS may have its issues but never doubt the unbelievable people behind it, who always go the extra mile.

A heartfelt very big thank you to each and every one of you - you are all a credit to your profession, and keep up the wonderful service that you provide in Eastbourne.
