"care given to my mother during her two week stay"

About: Dorking General Hospital

My mother broke her hip and spent 3 weeks at St Helier Hospital, she was transferred to Dorking Hospital Friday 6th March. On arrival the kindness and the approach of settling her in were very good. She spent 2 weeks in the Hospital where she made excellent progress thanks to the staff and amenities. In all that time we found all the staff very kind and helpful. The food was of a good quality and nicely presented. It is these hospitals for the after care of operations especially in the elderly that are so important to our communities. I can't praise it enough and I would like to send a special thanks to the Ward Manager and goes beyond the call of duty and also to the Ward Sister and all their staff. Thank you once again to everybody in Ranmore Ward.
