"This hospital is a example of excellent standards"

About: West Mendip Community Hospital

My sister passed away in the Abbey ward of West Mendip hospital this week.

We cannot express our gratitude adequately, for the dignity and repect that was given to not only my sister but also her family and friends.

The Nurses facilitated her wishes to die in the open air under the stars.

The care was exemplary. As a manager of a different hospital and a Nurse by profession

I have never experienced such an amazing service.

This is a service to be proud of.
