A GRATEFUL patient has today spoken of the difference a dedicated doctor made to his life, as he nominated him for a prestigious award.

Peter Nash, 78, was nervous and worried before his hip replacement operation in September but he said the care of consultant orthopaedic surgeon Tim Brammar helped him through the experience.

Mr Nash, of The Street, Eyke, said: “I can not speak too highly of Mr Brammar. The attention I received from him was excellent, he was so approachable, with a good sense of humour and was so caring.

“Once he had operated he was round to see me twice a day, always smiling, I can't think anything would ruffle him.
