"Caring and concerned staff"

About: Amersham Hospital

Anything else?

Two years ago, when my mother was dying of ovarian cancer, she was admitted to Wycombe Hospital - our experience their was horrendous. Fortunately, after much fighting, I was able to get her moved to Amersham Hospital. The care she received in the final days of her life was wonderful. Caring staff who involved the family in every decision. I can't praise this hospital enough, from the nursing staff, Social Worker & OT to the visiting doctor all were wonderful and supportive and made that awful time a little more bearable for us. A huge thanks to all of them. I heard rumours that Amersham Hospital was to close which would be a tragedy - the only hospital under Buckinghamshire NHS Trust that is worth saving.
