What I liked

Hi I'm commenting on behalf of my mother in law.

She was admitted to the stroke ward following a TIA.

The service & care she received was fantastic once on the ward.

Within a couple of hours test had been order & performed.

She commented to us how nice the food was.

The stroke nurse who was there was fantastic, not only did she take the time to keep explaining to mum the treatment plan & care plan, she then did the same with the family. No matter how many times we asked the same question, she would go through it again & again until we all understood mums care/treatment plan.

I would like to say a massive thank you to all the staff from the stroke ward, but an extra special thank you to the stroke nurse, you are a credit to the NHS, shame we can't clone you.

Thank you all again

What could be improved
