About: Sunderland Royal Hospital

Anything else?

Over the final week of our fathers life we found the care and kindness given to our family was exceptional on E51. We were given privacy when required, but always felt they were there supporting all the family. All the staff on the ward treated our father with respect and dignity. Thanks to everyone for taking excellent care at a difficult time
