SIR, - I am writing to comment on the standards of hygiene and cleanliness at St Albans City Hospital. I read so often of the failings of the national health Service and feel I would like to redress the balance.

Unfortunately I had to spend six weeks this summer on Sopwell Ward and was able to witness first hand the standards that are in place. Despite a never-ending lack of staff, at no time did I feel that there was anything other than first-class attention to keeping the ward in immaculate condition.

This gave myself and my family great peace of mind. A big thank you to all concerned.

MR C.A. LADBROOK,

Collyer Road, London Colney.

Being ill sucks. No matter what’s got you down – the flu, a broken bone, diabetes, cancer – it’s a horrible place to be. Your body is weaker and less capable. The drugs you take mess with your mind and your moods and sometimes can make you feel even worse than when you started. Mental ill-health is no different. The brain is an organ, and like any organ, it doesn’t always function to the medical standard of “normal”. Mine certainly doesn’t.
