"Care of my mother"

About: University Hospital Of North Durham

Anything else?

I would like to thank everyone involved in the care of my mother (90yrs old) who was admitted via A&E and who went through the admissions ward then onto Ward 6. At all times she was treated with the utmost dignity and I can't fault the medical attention she received during her stay. In addition, she was cared for by the nursing team with great compassion. Living at the other end of the country, I was also able to speak to staff at regular intervals and was never made to feel that I was being a nuisance!! My thanks to you all.
