This is lovely. A email sent and pictures provided. Gladdens the heart. And so important to remember, that in the middle of all the challenges and press negativity, there are hundreds and thousands of stories like this.

Dear David,
After reading the article in our Claines parish paper I wanted to contact you to share our experience of Worcester hospital. On 14th November last year I gave birth to our healthy baby daughter there, we ended up being high risk and had a forceps delivery. All through the experience the staff were wonderful, calm, reassuring and exceptionally capable. My husband was more nervous about the labour than me, and they made him feel so confident and part of the experience. Although we brought them thank you chocolates after, this is a wonderful way of sharing the excellent work that those hard working nurses and doctors are doing at Worcester. Kind regards
Claire Howitt

So long and thanks for all…Fish

My colleague Rev Andrew Fisher (pictured above!) will be moving from being Chaplain at the Alexandra Hospital in August. I will miss him as a colleague, and his friendship and support. He has worked tirelessly at the Alex for the last 4 years, and has made a difference!

Here is a comment which came from patients about his work:

“Thank you Andrew for all the comfort and compassion you showed our family after N’s passing. We were all very moved by your gentle approach to all that mattered to us. Thank you once again.”In times of need, I know Andrew has been there for patients, relatives and staff. The church he is going to is lucky to have him and our loss is there gain. He will be a hard act to follow and I, personally, wish you well Andrew.
