"Excellent life saving treatment and after care of..."

About: Barnsley Hospital

Anything else?

My father 79 was rushed into hospital with breathing probs after collapsing on mon 8th July and was admitted to Ward 17. The following day he nearly died because of horrendous breathing problems [infercema and other problems] but with the help of All the staff and doctors on that ward he pulled through and is coming home, 18th July. The after care and general care by the nurses was excellent and sometimes above what maybe expected. A special mention goes to a nurse who was doing 13 hour night shifts. They were very personable and helpful in a families worse time. Regards Phil a very grateful son.
