"Final Illness of Neil."

About: Leighton Hospital

On two occasions (Ward 5 in June 2014, Ward 7 in August 2014) our son was treated for aspiration pneumonia. During this time he was also diagnosed with secondary liver carcinoma of unknown primary. All his family would like to thank all the professional staff on both wards for the excellent care and treatments given to him during this difficult time. Although he could not be cured, the kindness of the nursing staff, particularly in easing his pain, was much appreciated. Julie and Martyn
