‘I just wanted to comment on the superb paperwork I was provided with whilst attending Winash on an incident 2-3 weeks ago. Please be assured that Winash is flying the flag of excellence where this is concerned. I have never been offered such comprehensive and detailed patient details whilst attending a care home. Thank you for making my job so much easier and more importantly for giving the residents the opportunity of the best possible care whilst away from Winash.’ CP – Paramedic
