"Palliative care"

About: Doncaster Royal Infirmary

My father in law was recently admitted to DRI with a ruptured aortic aneurysm. From his admission into A&E to his passing away on Surgical Assessment Ward, he was treated with the utmost care and dignity. In particular, I would like to praise the Registrar and the Consultant for their professionalism and compassion. Also the night nursing team on SAW for the care and attention afforded to my wife and her sister. Thank you for giving my father in law the best death he could have hoped for.
