"The little details make all the difference."

About: Musgrove Park Hospital / Gynaecology

(as a service user),

What a fantastic caring, clean ward Hestercombe is. It's not all about pills, medicine etc. The compassion, care and the little details make all the difference. 

Had many laughs, but many wears as well. All were very supportive and caring. Wonderful people work on that ward. 

Amazing, thank you all so much.

Food choices excellent too!
