"Thank you!"

About: Southampton General Hospital

My elderly mother was taken in by ambulance and I was so grateful that she was so well looked after. From the paramedics who brought her in to the receptionist dealing with relatives like me unable to be with her because of the norovirus outbreak, acting as a go between to keep her reassured - brilliant. My father died 2 years ago at age 96 and in his last few years we leaned heavily on the emergency services as he fell etc. in common with the frailty of age. The staff were all consistently excellent and so I just wanted to say thank you from me - an only child (and an OAP myself!)
