"JPH cared well for our mother during a 4 week..."

About: James Paget University Hospital

Anything else?

Our mother, Joan has been admitted to the JPH on 2 occasions over the last 6 months. The first being last September with a serious infection (for which she was admitted for 4 weeks) and more recently with a mini stroke.

My family and I would like to express our sincere gratitude to all who cared for our mum during her stays. Everyone from the paramedics and ambulance crew to the doctors, nurses and physiotherapist who looked after her on Ward 3, 18 and recently in the Stroke Ward (1), have been brilliant.

Things weren't always 'perfect' but in general, we feel everything that should have been done, was done (from scans and x-rays to assessments and medication). Bearing in mind the constant government cuts to the NHS budgets, I think the staff at your hospital, who we know are always rushed off their feet, manage it very well without compromising on thoroughness or care.

It had been a very worrying time for our family and we believe that without the care of the staff at the JPH, we would not be in such a fortunate position now with our mum having made a good recovery.
