LETTER: Hopefully home for Christmas

Our Grandson Alfie entered this world 13 weeks early on the 26th July this year weighing in at 20 ounces.

From that day until the 23rd of November he was looked after at the Robert Mann Baby Unit in Brighton. Happily he now weighs over 7 pounds and has been transferred to the SCBU in the Princess Royal Hospital in Haywards Heath. Hopefully home for Christmas.

May we through the media of your newspaper thank each and every person in that unit from junior nurse through to senior consultant/surgeon for the incredible job they have done for Alfie and for our son and daughter-in-law and the entire family.

It is an age old cliché that these wonderful people are ‘just doing their job’ but there are jobs and there are jobs. The work these people do is beyond belief. Nothing was ever too much for them whatever the time of day or night.

To anyone in the future that finds themselves needing the help of these amazing people rest assured your baby will receive the best help you could possibly ever imagine.

The NHS get a bad press at time but I truly believe we are so lucky in this part of the country.

Mike and Pam Stone

Potters Lane, Burgess Hill
