I AM a nurse myself and am fed up with the constant negative reports on my profession and the NHS.

I recently had an exceptional experience at Poole General Hospital on March 20.

I went into Day Case Unit for a laparoscopic cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal).

All the staff were brilliant with special thanks to nurse Sue Sedgley and Iris Landridge and HCA Alma.

All the staff were kind and very hard-working. Also very informative and professional.

I would also like to thank all the staff in main theatre for all their marvellous care.

They also cannot be praised enough for all the hard work they do.

There are plenty of health care professionals out there who need to hear what a wonderful job they do and I know they’ll appreciate a public thank-you.

I have had both very good and rather bad experiences recently. I blame chronic staff shortages for the bad ones where the number of nurses on duty was the very minimum required to man the ward leaving no one time for in depth nursing practises. This is a management issue driven by cost cutting. If we as a society continue to allow the Governments that we do or don't vote into power to keep chipping away at the jewel in our country's crown, then we will only have ourselves to blame when tired nurses accidentally leave us lying in our own blood all night.
