"Care for my dad."

About: Dorset County Hospital

My father was brought into Dorchester Hospital quite recently via ambulance. The first responder and ambulance crew were excellent. Accident and emergency staff were excellent. My father was transferred up to the stroke unit and the staff especially the staff nurse and nurse were extremely kind to my father. Being a nurse myself I feel strongly about feedback of the NHS system and we are lucky to have this very good service.

Response from Dorset County Hospital

Thank you for your very kind comments about your fathers care by the ambulance crew and the Emergency department team. It is also lovely to hear the positive feedback about the Stroke Unit team and especially the staff nurse. Feedback on the services and care we provide is really valued by all our staff and I am very grateful you took the time to leave a comment. I will ensure the staff on the unit are aware of the kind words you have written and I am delighted to hear you father is recovering well. Kind regards, Alison Tong, Director of Nursing, Dorset County Hospital
