Unfortunately my father had to attend A & E last week. He suffers from very sever dementia and all medical treatment is extremely difficult as he has no communication left to him. His doctor had 'phoned ahead as she was unable to help. On arrival at St Richards we were shown straight to a cubical and the relevent specialists were waiting to help him. He was treated with great compassion and efficiency and within the hour we were on our way home. May I say that dementia is a terrible disease both for the patient and their family and hospital visits are stressful to both parties. The attention he received was wonderful and very refreshing. Many ,many thanks.
