"Fantastic care"

About: Royal Derby Hospital

My father in law sadly passed away on ward 404 at Royal Derby Hospital. The care and attention he received whilst there was excellent. The whole team from HCAs, who took time and attention to ensure he was washed and clean, to nurses whose compassion to us as a family will remain with us for yars to come and the medical team who explained everything so well; we cannot thank you enough. You truly deserve awards. Thank you all so much

I am pleased to hear that you felt your family was supported during this difficult time as well. I would like to wish you and your family well for the future.
