LETTERS: Well done NHS for top treatment

Reader David Hartley was impressed with the treatment he received at Dewsbury and District Hospital.

I arranged an appointment at the doctors on a Wednesday. They told me I needed an X-ray.

As the doctors appointment was late in the day, they told me to ring the appointments centre on the Friday which allowed time for their request to get there. 
I duly rang at 9.30am on Friday. They asked if I would prefer Dewsbury Hospital, and I said yes. They said could I attend that day. Again I said yes. They said I could have an appointment at 12.05pm.
I arrived about 10 minutes early. I was called at noon. I was attended to promptly. I arrived home at 12.25.

I could not have had a better experience, even at a private hospital

Well done NHS
