"Dealing with the elderly"

About: University Dental Hospital

I attended the hospital today with my mum who is in her eighties . We arrived earlier than planned and was seen straight away .The dentist and staff who saw her were extremely polite , allowed her to make her own decisions and were extremely kind with us. She had to have an XRay which took less than 10 minutes and we were seen and dealt with within 40 minutes.

I was extremely impressed with the service we received and wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you to the people involved and support the NHS who do an amazing job under difficult circumstances

Thank you
