Letter - Walk is a marathon

Thank you for your excellent report on the unused bus stops at Pinderfields Hospital.

I am please to hear Martha Ward (Facebook) stating she does not have an issue with the long walk from Aberford Road but stop to the entrance to the hospital. I hope she will be able to continue this walk up to the age of 80 years.

My concern was for all people attending Pinderfields – staff, visitors and patients, last week in the heavy rain. This for some people was a marathon.

May I end my letter on a positive note. My husband was treated in casualty by two wonderful doctors late at night, then admitted to ward 20.

Due to expert treatment for pneumonia from doctors and nurses on this ward he was able to go home after six days with ongoing medication. We will forever be grateful.
