A “grateful” former patient has sent medical center staff an anonymous Christmas credit card every year since 1960.
Stamford Hospital in Lincolnshire stated the card appeared “every year with no fail” on the matron’s desk, with all the same message of thanks.
It is addressed to medical staff at the now disused Exeter Ward and has a postal indicate for the South East Anglia Postal mail Centre in Chelmsford, Essex.
Hospital matron Sue Brooks said it had been a “great mystery” for 57 years.
“It would be great to find that is still so grateful after all these types of years, ” she said.
She added staff were desperate to find the mystery sender so “they too can say thank you and Merry Christmas”.
The North Western Anglia NHS Foundation Trust stated the “once busy” Exeter Keep was an all-male ward, therefore staff know the patient is a man.
In the card, he or she said he was a “grateful” affected person in 1960 and was “still going strong”.
