"The care was truly breathtaking"

About: City Hospital campus / Oncology

(as a relative),

My Mother was admitted to Hogarth ward at Nottingham City hospital in September, she had end stage metastatic pancreatic cancer and deteriorated more rapidly than anticipated.

My sister and I were able to stay with her constantly for the last 5 days of our life together and were able to contribute towards her care.

The staff were all so amazing, including the dark haired housekeeping lady on Gervis Pearson who realised what we were going through and always spoke to us kindly as we walked through the ward.

The care was truly breathtaking and as a nurse myself, made me proud to be a nurse.

Response from City Hospital campus

This feedback was originally posted in September 2014 via the Patient Opinion website. There is presently a technical problem with the NHS Choices website. This means a back log of comments are presently being pulled from the Patient Opinion website later than usual. We have escalated our concerns to the NHS Choices team, who have assured us that their team are working to resolve the problem. We responded to this post back in September 2014. This lovely feedback was shared with the staff involved at the time.
