"Thank you"

About: Queen's Medical Centre

I would like to thank all the staff I have met at QMC in ward C4 and C5 , in C4 looking after my mother who is 85 and has a broken hip and my short stay with dislocated ankle after being run over by a car in hospital car park in C5. The staff are unfailingly kind, courteous, and caring and have helped a lot by phone as well whilst I was unable to visit for 2 weeks after my accident.

I am very aware of the pressure on a pre and post op ward andwitnessed much kindness to people who are delirious and even violent when patients which is amazing. My mum her self has been very confused and helped a lot.

My only concern is for joined up care as my mother has several non orthopaedic conditions which are not getting looked at quickly enough by other departments not responding despite junior docters asking for help . I hope this will be resolved soon as it will impede her recovery.
