"Palliative Care - Accord Hospice - Eternally grateful for all the help and care."

About: NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde

(as a carer),

When my husband was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer, the care and commitment received by my GP, Oustead nurses and MacMillan nurses from Accord Hospice was excellent and with the help I was able to respond to my husbands wishes.

He was at home with myself, son and daughter when he passed away.

Without the care in the community we could not have done this and I will be eternally grateful for all the help and care.

Response from Paul Cannon, Head of Administration, Acute Services Division, Greater Glasgow & Clyde NHS

Thank you for taking the time and trouble to provide your very kind feedback.

I will ensure that this is passed on to those involved and I am sure that they will be very pleased to read your comments.

I am sorry that this posting was not acknowledged at the time, we had a break in our use of Patient Opinion, but we have now resumed doing so, and I thought it was still important to acknowledge your posting and where appropriate to pass comments on.

Once again, thank you for using the Patient Opinion feedback system, it is greatly appreciated.

I know all the nursing teams involved and the Accord Hospice staff will appreciate your very thoughtful and kind remarks.
