Over the past 12 months, I have spent 13 weeks in James Connolly Memorial Hospital; four weeks in St Mary's, Phoenix Park; one week respite care in Cherry Orchard; and one week respite care in the MS centre.

Whilst there I have had dealings with all members of staff: A&E, nurses, doctors, consultants, care assistants, kitchen staff, cleaning staff, social workers, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and various students.
