Dear Anonymous Condolences on losing your mother and many thanks for your feedback on your experience of our C3 ward and their care for your mother, thank-you for taking the time to do so. I will make sure your appreciation is passed onto the team who will be very pleased to hear that your recent experience with us was really positive as we always strive to deliver safe, personal & effective care.

If you would like to talk through your visit to us with one of our Patient Experience team so we can understand the bits of your experience that made this bearable for you we would really value this so that we can try to make it like this for every family who are sadly saying their final farewells to relatives in our hospitals and services.
