Mrs K came in to see Consultant Physician in Elderly Medicine Dr Pandita-Gunawardena at Spire Gatwick Park Hospital.

I am writing on behalf of myself and my brothers to thank Dr Pandita-Gunawardena very much for the care when you looked after my mother, Mrs K.

Before consulting you, we had become very concerned at her mental and physical detorioration for which there seemed to be no possible improvement. However since you have seen her, changed her medication and recommended occupational and physiotherapy, she has improved significantly for the better - she is mentally much more alert and physically more mobile.

It is both surprising and heartening that all is not lost - even at 89 years old.

Thank you again
