I FELT compelled to write to congratulate the staff at the Magnolia Centre at York Hospital. On a recent visit there I found the staff to be caring, really pleasant and helpful, and very efficient.

At a time when the NHS is criticised at every opportunity, staff should be encouraged for all their hard work and commitment.

• I WISH to thank the person who handed in my lost wallet yesterday on Sunday.

I lost it in the gents’ toilet on the third floor of Marks & Spencer’s in Parliament Street, only becoming aware of this fact some ten minutes later. Thank you to the gentleman who handed my wallet in to the exchange and refund desk, also to the efficient staff at M&S when I enquired if it been handed in.

Grateful thanks to all concerned once again.
