STAFF and volunteers at Weston General Hospital have come in for praise from Sir Michael Parkinson.

The celebrity interviewer said he was impressed by the unity of workers at the Uphill facility following a visit last April.

The praise was made in a report by Sir Michael as part of his role as country ambassador for Dignity - a Government campaign for dignified treatment in care.

He said: "I came away with the sense that they were like a family - all the staff seemed to know each other and work together - perhaps this is something other places can learn from."

Weston Area Health NHS Trust chief executive Lorene Read said: "We are very pleased that the visit left him with such a positive view and that he has chosen to share that in his national report."
