The family wrote to our team about their daughter (anonymised): “Can we just say, by way of context, that we have been struck by the high standard and great sophistication of our daughter’s treatment. This is her 11th hospital in 4.5 years, over half which have been as an inpatient.

“The entire clinical regime, from Dr Hind’s leadership, to the excellent clinical and nursing team, and to what are quite obviously exceptional and well-prepared health care assistants, has given us complete confidence that our daughter is being given every possible chance to recover.

“It will be a long haul, of course, and I really wouldn’t wish the fairly minor point of access to cloud how enormously grateful we are that our daughter is being treated at Ellern Mede.”
