"Fordwich Ward"

About: Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Hospital

Anything else?

My father was admitted with a stroke and sadly passed away due to this and other complications. I would like to thank all the staff on Fordwich Ward for working so hard for my father, and for the care, dignity and compassion they gave him when he was dying. He was made as comfortable as possible on a side-ward and staff went above and beyond the call of duty for him. They also gave my sister and I tremendous support and we cannot thank them enough.
