Thank you to Ward 11S at City Hospital


Many times I have threatened to commit my thoughts to your pages but the issues move on, the annoyance passes and no letter is written.

On this occasion I am duty bound to express my sentiments loudly particularly since they are in contrast to nonsense masquerading as “political debate”.

In April my daughter was the recipient of a kidney transplant, the donor being her sister. Both are doing well and contemplating return to work soon and I cannot let this occasion pass without praising to the high heavens the people at Belfast City Hospital, from the incredible skills of the surgeons, the professionalism of the consultants, the care of all the medical and nursing staff and the friendliness and efficiency of the auxiliary team.

Many of these skills and talents we should expect from the medical experts, but the devotion, dedication and kindness shown by these wonderful people was exceptional and delivered with a smile.

The team were brilliantly led by those at the top and they followed that lead brilliantly.

Thanks from a family who prefer to remain anonymous.

As of June 9 this team had contributed 47 kidney transplants to our society and our political “leaders” have contributed what?
