"My daughter was an inpatient on ..."

About: Epsom Hospital

(as a relative),

What I liked

My daughter was an inpatient on Chuter Ede Ward. She has cerebral palsy and is profoundly deaf and partially sighted, this meant i had to stay with her during her stay. We have experienced many hospital admissions over her lifetime and usually on childrens wards and adolescent units. Now 23 years old, she has to be admitted to an adult ward. We were both concerned how this would work for us. I have to say the care we both received was outstanding, I could not have managed this difficult elongated stay without the staff. Unfortunately I cannot remember all the nurses names but they were all excellent. Whether they were working days or nights they were so kind, courteous, professional and worked so hard. I cannot thank them all enough for making a difficult admission so much easier for us. I realise the nurses are frontline staff and these nurses on Chuter Ede are truly a credit to Epsom Hospital and the NHS. Thank-you ladies for being wonderful.

Anything else?

Thank-you thank-you thank-you. please pass this on to Chuter Ede ward. I am sure they will remember my daughter.
