St Luke's has always had a special place in my heart, hence this year after my ankle break, my goal has been to walk the "Neon Midnught Walk".
I will always remember the day my Nan held me 'hostage' at St Luke's until she could leave for a home visit - she was a feisty & strong woman, perhaps that's where I get it from.
We sat there talking about the times she made homemade pasties - the best! With our initials on top. We talked about the times I used to stay over & all the children in the street.
We talked about our family Christmas parties & the annual family trip to the Panto. It was a fabulous day, with the nurses coming in to check Nan was ok & Nan bossing them about! Supplying me with cups of tea & biscuits whilst overlooking the grounds.
It made me realise that some memories are made in the most unexpected places.
The care Nan received at St Luke's was exceptional. Even after she died, the nurses still cared for her in a compassionate way.
Thank you St Luke's for your time & dedication, not only to your patients but family & friends too.
