I THOUGHT I would write about the good service I received at Thornbury Health Centre.

I don't go often to the doctor but on Wednesday morning I telephoned to make an appointment. I got one for 10.20.

I went in and sat down and was surprised my name was immediately called. The doctor took only minutes to diagnose the problem.

She commented on how well I was for my age and said I did not need doctors or words to that effect.

All of us should avoid self-inflicted suffering, and try to look after our health.

I would like to thank that young doctor for her proficiency and cheerfulness. She is a credit to our NHS.
