WE often hear a lot of negative news on the state of our National Health Service, but I would through your letter page like to sincerely thank all the health service staff that was involved in my recent treatment at Dorset County Hospital .

All the doctors, nurses and staff on the Prince of Wales ward & Maud Alexandra ward.

The staff on these two wards are a credit to the health service, I cannot single out any particular member of staff as they all worked so well as a team, nothing was too much trouble and they kept me fully informed with regards the treatment I required. I would also like to thank the doctors at Lyme Regis medical centre and the ambulance crew that took me into hospital.

Once again thank you all very much.
