"Grandads stay"

About: Lings Bar Hospital

my grandad came to lings bar hospital afer a lengthly stay in hospital, we knew as soon as he was moved that this was going to be the final move that he made. grandad was on forest ward i really cant think them enough for everything that they did to ensure that not only he was well looked after but so was every member of the family as they arrived whilst at times there were so many of us in the one room we could have visited every person on the ward we were never made to feel like we were intruding every person i encountered on the ward and in the hospital corridors was polite helpful and offered a simple hello. what an amazing place ! the grounds are amazing and very peaceful

It is good to know that not only did the ward staff make every effort to look after your grandad, but that they also made his whole family feel welcome and cared for too.

I will pass on your thanks to the Ward Manager of Forest Ward to share with the whole team.
