Having heard nothing but pad press about the NHS in the media, I would like to share my recent experience. From the moment the ambulance delivered me to resus, from there to intensive care unit and later to Oxhey and Letchworth wards I received nothing but five-star treatment.

The expertise, dedication, kindness and caring I received from the consultants, doctors and nurses and all the wonderful team that make the smooth running of Watford General Hospital; I will never be able to thank you all enough for saving my life and giving me a chance to enjoy 2018 with my family.

Is our NHS the best in the world? Yes, it is.
