Following my return home as an outpatient I would just like to thank MJ Cars Thornbury and all the staff in Dermatology, Haematology, the Isolation Ward, Caterers and Cleaners at Southmead Hospital for all the care and attention they have given to myself and my supportive wife.

Please do use sun protection cream 50. Our strong sunshine often comes with cleaner drier air from the North which can let more UV light through than the dusty humid air often experienced in the Mediterranean.

Also a small day job operation can encounter unforeseen complications leading to a week as an inpatient, neither are nice.
