My cousin was admitted to Ward 2 of St Andrews Community Hospital in the latter stages of her cancer. The care and kindness from the staff could not have been bettered. On the evening that she died they made sure that she was looking her best and wrapped her legs in a purple blanket which was my cousin's favourite colour. The staff cared for both my cousin and myself that night with such kindness but that had been the way throughout her three or so weeks in the hospital. Myself and friends visited at all sort of hours and always got a pleasant welcome. The time and patience shown to my cousin was exemplary.
