"Amazing staff on Palm ward"

About: Darent Valley Hospital

My Uncle John (Scudder) was admitted to this ward following a respiratory issue from pneumonia. The whole ethos of the ward was perfect beyond imagination. Every person we came into contact with from the doctors right up to the lovely cleaners and auxiliary staff. Wonderful. They were patient, kind, comforting, thoughtful, professions, thorough And encouraging. They made you feel as though you were their family and that they cared for your loved ones as if they were their own. Thank you Palm ward. You made his transition from a beautiful soul to receiving his angel wings as peaceful and calm as it could have been. RIP Uncle John.
