Personal News

Dear Friends

Just to let you know that my Dad died peacefully at home during the night.

He was 83, and had been diagnosed with terminal cancer. The prognosis had been that, as it worsened, he would have had to go to a hospice etc.

Quite clearly, for him and Mum, it is far better that he died at home peacefully and not in pain or connected to a machine.

The media often likes to report on the inadequacies, and alleged failures, of our overburdened NHS.

I would like to say, for the record, that the people who we (my parents and I) have worked with over the past few months have been first class; the doctors, nurses, health care workers etc have been professional, caring and competent.

I would like to say thank you to them for all that they have done.

Ken

  13. My condolences Ken.

    As you say it is a better end than might otherwise be the case as my experience with my Mum informed me a few short years ago.

    Back then the NHS was amazingly good at getting around some of the rules, for her benefit, in somethings and less good in other ways when dealing with one or two mainly ancillary staff.

    The Hospice route might have been acceptable but gaining access locally was extremely difficult.

    It sounds like your Dad had the best result available under the distressing circumstances and that is something from which to take some comfort.

  14. Sorry to hear your bad news Ken.

    My sincere sympathies to you and your family.

    83. Not a bad innings for the old boy.

    Regards. Dog.

  15. I'm so sorry, Ken. Having leukaemia and chronic chest infections myself, I empathise with your family's experience. I can only echo your praise for the NHS. My consultants at two London hospitals are unfailingly supportive, and I go to the local Marie Curie Hospice every week where the staff are wonderfully kind and the cheerfulness of the other patients an inspiration. So it's not all gloom and doom.

I too have found my NHS consultants extremely supportive, and the local Marie Curie Hospice, which I visit weekly, is a friendly and cheerful place. So it's not all gloom and doom!
