“I would like to express my gratitude, on behalf of BHFT, to Dr Nev Bhagrath and his team for their professionalism and exemplary attitude, communication and collaboration with us in meeting the needs of the patients we refer to them. Through this exemplary teamwork, we have successfully discharged some patients from their PICU to community, and these patients are doing very well in the community. I cannot speak highly enough of this team and long may this collaboration continue!”
