What I liked
My father was diagnosed with bowel cancer in May at North Tyneside Hospital. He had subsequent short stays in hospital before he died. He was taken into hospital and into a general ward where he stayed for 3 days, while dying and died during visiting hours with visitors calling across the ward to each other.
What could be improved
He could have been moved somewhere private to die with dignity and in private.
