My husband was rushed to hospital with a severe infection - he has terminal cancer and has been undergoing intensive chemotherapy so already extremely unwell.
The whole experience could not have been any better considering the circumstances. The emergency doctor came out to see my husband and she was very kind and understanding and stayed with him unitl he was safely in the ambulance, all the time explaining to him and myself what was happening.
He was taken to A&E and seen by a very nice doctor and then a very kind consultant. After some tests he was admitted to the MacMillan ward. All the staff there were amazing, nothing was too much trouble for them and they were very patient and kind.
They told me to phone day or night if I had any concerns or worries about my husband, he wasnt eating too well and they went out of their way to try and tempt him with all different foods, cooking him eggs, custard etc at any time of the day or night that he was able to eat. One day on the menu there was rice and raisins but he does not like raisins in his rice so they even said they would pick out the raisins for him. Again nothing was too much trouble for them they was willing to do all they could to make his stay better and for his health to improve.
When he was down one day as he was missing home they suggested bringing our dog in to see him which really helped him.
