I am glad to have the opportunity to place this review. For the past few years Alan Bowfield from the unit has supported my aunt who is registered blind. Older patients can prove challenging and Alan has arranged various vision aids but built a good relationship with my aunt who is very wary of social work involvement. Thank you Alan from myself and the family for your kindness and patience.
