"My mum who was diagnosed with terminal cancer"

About: Royal Albert Edward Infirmary / High dependency unit

(as a relative),

My mum was diagnosed with terminal cancer out of the blue in January.

Mum saw many doctors and nurses over the next 3 months before she sadly passed away in early April.

I can not praise all the doctors, and nurses on mau lowton and winstanley ward enough, for their care, time, dedication and help, they could not do enough for mum and our family.

Also the hospital palliative care team for all their help in our hour of need.
