"My dad's care following a stroke"

My dad was a patient at Basildon Hospital for 4 weeks during February and March following a stroke. The care he received in A&E, intensive care unit and the stroke ward Pasteur was delivered by staff from all professional backgrounds who consistently showed kindness and compassion. My family were kept well informed about his condition and when it became clear my dad was not going to leave hospital we were well supported until his death. I was particularly impressed by the health care assistants who were kind, patient and humorous with my dad. I will also always remember the support they gave to me when his condition deteriorated. Thank you
