"Care of my mother aged 83"

About: Basildon University Hospital

Anything else?

The main reason im writing this review is to express how satisfied i have always been with my mothers treatment ....my mum has been backwards and forwards to your hospital since may 2012 ....she has been in various wards and has had tests and treatments for various different medical conditions ....she would never be with us now if it wasnt for your hospital ....

Also my mum has visited your heamotology dept (orsett ward ) every three weeks and now its the new infusion suite and that has been excellent care also ....

If i was going to critisise it would be the A&E dept as recently ive had to take my terminally ill mother there and it was caotic and unorganised and stressful for someone so ill and waiting with no body knowing whats happening !
