Testimonials
Testimonials
We are committed to the provision of excellent nursing care.

"All I can say is that I am VERY impressed with the team at Vickery court, from the manager to the maintenance man, that have an excellent team that are friendly and caring. I wouldn’t hesitate to say they would be the best private hospital I have come across based on the features of being caring and having a great team atmosphere…. It really is something to be noted!" (Rep from a Medical company)

We came down to visit Mum on a regular basis... 2 or 3 times a year... and as well, I spoke to my Mum daily so feel I have a very clear indication of 'life for her at Vickery'. And she was happy. The lovely Staff made sure of that. They are a warm, friendly team.
Thank you to Vickery Staff for simply everything they did for Mum, and for creating a loving 'home' environment ....
