"Thank you for helping my father"

About: Royal Sussex County Clinic Royal Sussex County Hospital / Gastroenterology Uckfield Hospital

(as a relative),

My father attended Sussex County out patients department mid April for investigations of anaemia. He was given an appointment for a colonoscopy for the following Saturday morning. Unfortunately he was too sick to keep this appointment and was admitted to the A&E and then transferred to the MAS Unit. Investigations showed that he had Acute Myeloid Leukaemia and he died in Uckfield Hospital in May.

I wrote to the A&E and the MAS to thank them for their care of him, but I would also like to thank the out patients department for the courtesy and consideration that he received on that Wednesday afternoon. You all treated him with great respect and kindness, without patronising him. You also spoke to him correctly as a hearing aid wearer. It was a tiring appointment for this 96 year old to keep, but you all made it as comfortable for him as you could.

Thank you again.
