A message from Jane: "A big thank-you to all the wonderful staff at the Sultan Abdul Halim Hospital. I am lucky to have received such good treatment from everyone on the Orthopaedic team. You are very skilled and caring people and I am grateful for everything you did for me. You helped me feel comfortable and positive and I miss you all."
