I am sure that you are all aware of the problems I have had since suffering a Life Threatening TBI 50 years ago

My wife had a stroke recently which left her with a shrunken cerellebum (the part of the brain which controls balance I f I recall correctly) since the scan results came back the amount of support from the hospital, GP is amazing and I can't praise the NHS staff high enough

I wish that I had been given the same support 50 years ago

Sorry did not mean to cause upset its just I had a client from the

USA who had married a Brit and she told me that in the US she had to choose between food or the doctors when her children were ill

Does she have any cognitive problems or is it all physical?

Oh that's good.

Always good to hear of good experiences with the NHS as the bad news abounds and NHS is under threat. so glad she is getting good care and support.
