About: Queen's Medical Centre Queen's Medical Centre Nottingham NG7 2UH
My mother was recently taken into the QMC as an emergency. The emergency team treated both my mum and me with care and compassion and made sure that we were extremely well looked after. It soon became clear that mum was very ill indeed and she lost her life shortly after. However, the care we received from the paramedics, to the nurses, consultant, emergency doctors and finally the team on C31 was unparallelled and made her last few hours as comfortable, safe and peaceful as they could possibly be. I was especially surprised by how much time the teams took to speak with me and my brother and to make sure we were cared for and looked after at such a difficult time - something which went beyond their duty of care to my mum.
