THE NHS has been praised by a family for its superb standard of care – a year after a devastating motorbike crash.

Oliver Kyte, 22, came off his bike in Via Ravenna, Chichester, on August 19, last year.

He was immediately airlifted to Southampton General Hospital.

His grandfather, Gordon Flowers, said the whole family was thankful for the ‘flawless’ care provided by Southampton General and St Richard’s Hospital in Chichester, to help his recovery.

Just over a year on from the incident, Mr Flowers said: ‘He’s had a lot of support from the hospital.

‘They’ve been exceptionally good.

‘That hospital in Southampton is amazing.

‘Until you use it you just don’t know.’

He added that the hospital staff had ‘pulled the stops out’ and said his grandson was looking forward to ‘getting back to the norm’.

The road, near Chichester College, had to be closed at the time of the accident for the emergency services.
