Truly world-class hospital care

Today I came home after two days in Warwick Hospital having had a hip replacement operation. What an excellent experience.

We are hugely lucky having such a body of skilled professionals serving us. I cannot be too generous in expressing thanks for the level of courtesy, competence and great good nature that I experienced from staff coming from Slovakia, India, Greece, Indonesia.

We should be celebrating such excellence and commitment rather than allowing politicians and some of our more tawdry press to attack the service and, given that we are a wealthy nation, it can only be right that their service to the wider community is recognised by decent salaries.
