My father (95) was recently admitted suffering from pneumonia and gallstones. Following admission to A & E and the MAU, he was transferred to Ward 43 for further tests and treatment. I cannot believe the rapid improvement not only in his physical health, but also his mental condition. After 4 or 5 days, he was pain free and mentally far more alert. The ward is spotless and the staff friendly, helpful and extremely professional. My thanks go to all the staff, especially a senior staff nurse who genuinely takes a personal interest in all the patients under her care. She always has time for family members to discuss the condition of her patients and explained all aspects of care in great detail. I never felt that I was taking up her valuable time. Wonderful, caring people, and thank goodness for these underpaid Goddesses!
