"Excellent palliative care"

About: Ninewells Hospital / Acute Medical Unit (AMU)

(as a relative),

Would like to pass on a huge family thank you to the multidisciplinary teams across amu and ward5 for the excellent standards of care and compassion delivered to my relative and us, his family, during his final days within his 93rd year. Extra big thank you to Sophie and Lynsey from the nursing team for all their kindness.

Response from Nicola Irvine, Consultant in Acute Medicine, Acute Medical Unit, Ninewells Hospital, NHS Tayside

Dear Emotional

Thank you for your kind words in what clearly must have been a difficult and emotional time for you and your family. We strive to provide the best care we can for all patients & support their kin, carers & friends even if we, sadly, cannot make them better.

Your post has been shared with all the teams working in both AMU and ward 5 and we will be sure to highlight your extra big thanks to Sophie & Lynsey.

Best wishes
