PLEASE allow me to thank Musgrove Park Hospital following surgery recently.

My surgeon, Mr Speakman, his registrar Helen, my anaesthetist and the nursing staff all provided the most excellent advice, care and consideration and from time to time, some humour to make my attendance less arduous.

Special thanks to my assigned nurses while I was in room 36, Montacute West.

Thank you to all at Musgrove, you were brilliant.
