My father was admitted following a rapid decline in his health. He was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer which could not be treated.
The staff were amazing. They treated my dad with respect and kindness, declining to move him to another ward as this would have been too stressful for him.
In the 10 days from diagnosis to his death, it was a comfort to my mum and the family to know that the overworked staff found the time to go the extra mile to ensure my dad's final hours were as comfortable as possible.
Many thanks to them all.
