Nice to know they’re there

I have suffered with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) for a number of years.

Just recently I have been involved in a new initiative called Hospital at Home, run by the NHS.

This seeks to treat COPD sufferers in their home environment, instead of going to hospital.

The body of people who treated me were first class, and very thorough in the support they gave me while suffering from recurring chest infections.

I am now back on my feet and feeling like myself again.

I thought I would like to thank everyone involved in my treatment for the help and support I received from them all.

It’s also nice to know that they will be there for me whenever this happens again. Thank you all.
