Today, I had the misfortune to find myself in the A&E Department of Bedford Hospital. It is one thing observing a hospital department as an MP, quite another as a patient!
The staff were efficient and very kind, in fact, just brilliant and the department was spotlessly clean.
In the midst of anxt, it was a very funny moment when a nurse came out of the office and said “ok, I am the only one who has the courage to ask, are you the MP?”
Bedford is a lovely hospital. It’s a place where people are born, have their babies and meet their maker. It’s a family affair and a hospital we can all be proud of as I, and many of my constituents will vouch.
I am very grateful to the staff, you are wonderful.
