"Fantastic Care on Capel ward"

About: East Surrey Hospital / Older people's healthcare

(as a relative),

My Dad suffers from dementia and spent nearly 3 weeks in hospital due to an infection. His illness means he can't properly communicate and his behaviour can be challenging.

The staff on Capel ward at East Surrey Hospital treated him with respect and dignity and were so kind to my Mum and I who had seen his health deteriorate over a short period of time.

Thank you
