"My mothers recent stay in hospital"

About: Queen's Hospital, Burton Upon Trent

My elderly mother was admitted to ward 12 and was given palliative care by a very caring, considerate and attentive staff. Our family will always be grateful for the way that Mum was treated with the upmost dignity during the last three weeks of her life. We were allowed to visit when we needed and they were never too busy to answer our questions and all treatment was explained (often to all me and my siblings on different occasions depending when our visits were made).
