"A&E ward F6 were outstanding"

About: Addenbrooke's Hospital

My mum was rushed in to hospital Wednesday and she has been an outpatient for nearly 10 Year with terminal cancer. The A&E staff were fantastic with her even though she could hardly talk. We were admitted within 2 hours and pain relief ct scans and bloods we done. In EAU 4 the staff were fantastic all night. When she moved to F6 again what amazing people the staff were alway keep me her daughter informed at all times. They had a ward moved to D7 and still amazing in the madness so thank u.

Unfortunately when she was then moved to ward A4 I can't say the same on Friday lunch time the staff seemed nice but ward and bathroom were dirty but as the weekend shift change over happened well all I can say is that these members of staff let the hospital down

Response from Addenbrooke's Hospital

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about the care provided for your mother recently.

I have passed your kind words to the staff in the Emergency Department, EAU4 and F6 as they will be much appreciated.

I am concerned to learn about the cleanliness on A4 and I have informed the senior nursing staff so that these issues can be addressed.
