"Dad's last days in Middleton"

About: Kettering General Hospital

My 90 year old dad was admitted to the Middleton Assessment Unit in October and stayed there for six days. He was then moved to another ward where he passed away. The treatment that he received on Middleton was superb, he was well cared for and his last days were happy and comfortable. He was at all times treated with dignity and respect. We were kept fully informed about his condition and treatment and doctors and nurses also took the time to explain everything to him. Thank you so much for all your care.
