My mother was admitted to ward 11 following a catastrophic brain injury. Doctors had confirmed by scan that she would not regain consciousness and that it was a matter of hours or days before she passed away. The staff were all fantastic. They attended to mum's care needs with kindness and real warmth. Whilst waiting outside, we heard the nurses talking to her the whole time they attended her. My brothers and I took turns to sit with mum round the clock for 2 days until she died on 23rd January. Despite everyone knowing mum would not recover, they looked after us so well. Please pass on my heartfelt thanks from all the family. The staff are doing a marvellous job.
