Dad's NHS care was exceptional
My 75-year-old father was admitted to Glenfield Hospital on November 20 for planned open heart surgery.
Unfortunately, following the operation, he suffered respiratory failure and spent five weeks fighting for his life in the adult intensive care unit, before being transferred to Ward 31.
Throughout his time in hospital, his care was exceptional.
The dedication, skill and expertise shown by the doctors, nurses, physiotherapists and support staff is second to none and, thanks to their efforts, he is now at home and doing well.

It is a traumatic and harrowing experience for families of patients in intensive care and we would like to publicly thank the staff for the compassion shown to us during this time.
Information regarding Dad's condition was regularly given to us and staff were always willing to answer our endless questions.
The positivity shown by the staff was a huge encouragement to us when things weren't going well.
It became apparent from speaking with other visitors that Glenfield has an excellent reputation and patients are sent there from across the country to receive treatment.
We felt very lucky to have such expertise on our doorstep. We had already signed the petition to keep children's heart services at Glenfield and now feel more strongly than ever that this valuable service should be saved.
We are so grateful to have our precious husband, dad and grandad back with us and thank all at Glenfield Hospital for showing us the NHS at its best.

I was looking on Google maps (aerial view) when I noticed the strange lot of excavated shapes in the ground on a building site situated in part of an area bounded by Vaughn Way, Burgess Street, Highcross Street and Cumberland Street.
They are not very far from the former Great Central station and only a few hundred metres from the Jewry Wall Roman ruins.
They would presumably be built over by now. Does anyone know what they could be?
