"Simpson ward"

About: Torbay Hospital

Anything else?

On behalf of my mother in law, I would like to express my gratitude and thanks to how the staff on this ward treated her when her husband of 60 years passed away unexpectedly. The staff were.kind and caring at this difficult time and allowed her as much time as she needed to say goodbye. Prior to this unexpected outcome, I observed staff being quietly efficient in dealing with patients' medical, personal and emotional needs and thank them for their kindness and good humour.
