"Reasurred that all the staff worked well as a team..."

About: Leighton Hospital

What I liked

I am writing to express my gratitude to all the team on Ward 6A, nurses, HCA’s, physiotherapists, OT team, doctors and ancillary staff.

My father was a patient with you recently following a stroke and received excellent care and attention during that time. He told me how safe he felt in your care and was grateful for the kindness and understanding you showed towards him: which contributed to his speedy recover.

As a nurse myself I am acutely aware of the increasing pressures we all work under and all the staff I met on Ward 6A made me feel patients were their absolute priority at all times.

Keep up the excellent and professional teamwork and again thank you for helping my Dad.

Response from Leighton Hospital

Thank you for your kind comments regarding the care provided to your father and his family during his stay on ward 6A.

I am delighted that you have identified several members of the multidisciplinary team as they sometimes go unidentified as individuals who help provide holistic care for our patients . I hope your father continues to convalesce and, once again, thank you for your kind words.

Best wishes

John David

Lead Nurse
