"End of life care in ward 6."

About: Fairfield General Hospital

My mother was admitted to ward 6 from A & E. She was suffering from a rare form of lung cancer not associated with smoking. At the age of 93 yrs she was a very frightened lady. The consultant was most kind and careing. He wanted her to go to Bury Hospice, but unfortunately they were having financial problems and wouldn't take her. She spent 8 weeks on ward 6 and couldn't praise them enough. Eventually she went to the hospice were she died 3 days later. Thank you everyone concerned.
