"Care of elderly patient"

About: Basildon University Hospital / General surgery

I would like to thank the surgeons and nursing staff in both the Edith Cavell ward and the Endoscopy Unit for the care and attention given to my 92 year old mother during her recent 3 night stay and surgery.

She has expressed her praise for all staff and I witnessed the high standard of their care when I visited.

I was especially impressed with the personal attention given to my mother.
