I have had complaints about hospital administration in the past but would like to redress the balance and thank everyone for the fantastic care shown to my mother, from the day of her admittance after a severe stroke in October to her death 3 weeks later.
The paramedics, the A & E team, medical assessment staff and especially the staff on ward 6D were efficient, concerned, and caring not only towards my mother but also to myself at a very difficult time.
The consultant was sensitive to the need of the family to be kept informed and aware of the options open to us as to her continuing care.
Never for one moment did I feel that she was not of the utmost importance to everyone.
Death is never easy but we came through it knowing that she had been cared for and respected up to the end.
Thank you all.
