"Can't thank the staff enough"

About: East Surrey Hospital

My mother was admitted to East Surrey with advanced Pneumonia. Over the next 6 days the staff looked after her (and me) with dignity, empathy and the utmost professionalism. When she finally passed away the nurse was an example to us all in his humanity.

Thank you for posting such a positive comment at what must be such a sad time for you and your family. It is good to read though that you felt that both your mother and you were looked after so well.

Kind regards
