"My elderly father's recent in patient stay"

About: Poole General Hospital

My father has spent the last week between A and E, the RACE Unit and Kimmeridge Ward. What outstanding teams working at times under really difficult circumstances. The teams think not just about the patient but the whole family. As an only child I could have felt very alone when my father was admitted but the teams considered my needs as well as my father's which really helped. Everyone from the medics, nurses and physio's through to the tea staff were professional and positive. We have successfully survived this crisis because of all of them. Thank you so much for everything you have done. You are all absolute stars.

Response from Poole General Hospital

Thank you so much for taking the trouble to send your thanks to our dedicated staff, especially at what I'm sure is a very busy time for you.

I will pass your comments on to the teams in the wards and departments that you mention as they really are appreciated by our staff.

I hope that your father has made a good recovery following his admission.

Very best wishes,

Patient Experience Department
