We asked some family members what they thought about this website. Here are some of the things they said.

Information and reassurance 24/7

"One of the things that is so difficult...anxiety is high and it's hard to think in those circumstances. It was actually helpful that...I could look at the website... at the end of the day, after visiting and in the quiet of my own home."

"What you're looking for is "Is what I'm feeling an ordinary reaction, or am I unusual in this?" There's something very reassuring when you find information about the psychological impact. It's really quite well expressed."

"I liked the bit on "what the nurses do." It was really accurate, it gave you confidence in them, because you knew their role"
