Thanks for the wonderful care

I AM writing to say thank you for the wonderful care my mum received from nursing staff at the Conquest Hospital on the Medical Assessment Unit (MAU) from June 17 to 19 and Mirrlees Ward from June 19 to 21, where she sadly passed away.

Her family would particularly like to thank the nursing staff on duty on Mirrlees Ward during that time.

They were so kind, caring and compassionate that it comforted us to know mum was being well looked after in her last few days and for her to die with dignity.

We would also like to say thank you to Mrs Darwood, general manager of the emergency department, Dr Leonard, MAU Consultant and Dr Dennison, Department of Medicine for the Elderly consultant, for their support, compassion and care.

Too often the staff at the Conquest are criticised for their lack of care but in the case of my mum’s it was very caring and professional.
