"Dying with dignity"

About: Peterborough City Hospital

This is one of the hardest things to put onto words but I would be to thank everyone at the ccu at Peterborough for the love, compassion and care they showed not only to my grandmother but to my whole family. Unfortunately my nan passed away whilst in the hospital but the care my grandmother recurved was second to none and when she had her lucid moments she spoke of how nice the staff were to her. The care she received before and after she passed made this hardship to myself and family easier and we can't thank the staff enough. This isn't enough to repay the piece of mind you gave us and the care we all received
