Upmost dignity and kindness at hospital

People are quick to put pen to paper to complain about the Conquest Hospital but so often praise goes unrecorded.

In mid October our brother was admitted to the Conquest and following his diagnosis was transferred to Wellington Ward.

He was there for three weeks before sadly passing away. During this period he was treated with the upmost dignity, respect and kindness, as were we.

All the nursing staff, including students, were supportive in fighting to meet his best interests.

The general ward staff were sensitive and attentive to our own needs at all times.

When we could not be there we were confident that he was receiving all necessary care and attention, knowing that the nurses would call us if need be.

Thanks to all those involved in making our brother’s last hours peaceful.
