Com­pas­sion eased my wife’s fi­nal days

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION -

RE­CENTLY my wife died in Hilling­don Hospi­tal af­ter a dis­tress­ing ill­ness. Be­fore be­ing a pa­tient in the hospi­tal she re­ceived ex­cel­lent help at home from So­cial Ser­vices, dis­trict nurses, oc­cu­pa­tional and physio ther­a­pists but es­pe­cially Dr Pa­tel of the Medical Cen­tre, Queens Walk.

On ad­mis­sion to Pinewood Ward at Hilling­don Hospi­tal the whole nurs­ing team, doc­tors and con­sul­tants worked with great con­cern and pro­fes­sion­al­ism, keep­ing the fam­ily fully in­formed and mak­ing her fi­nal days as com­fort­able as pos­si­ble.

These days the Health Ser­vice re­ceive much crit­i­cism but my fam­ily and I want to thank all con­cerned with Moyra’s care for their com­pas­sion.
