"Excellent this time"

About: Leighton Hospital

My mother was admitted to A&E on Sunday December 22nd and the doctors and staff were caring and sympathetic towards my elderly mother. She was then moved to Ward 3 where all the staff are excellent with one of the best nurses my mother had been looked after(she had a 5week stay in August) In fact the nurse should do Ward rounds as I'm sure she'd soon sort out the problem wards(my mother experienced this on wards 12 & 13 during her previous stay)My mother was then moved to Ward 14 who had excellent staff also who kept us informed and looked after my mother.The staff on Ward 3 & 14 renewed my faith in Leighton hospital.
