"Just need a bed!!! :("

About: Great Ormond Street Hospital Central London Site

Anything else?

Cant get a bed! My sick daughter who needs a heart transplant has been waiting for a bed at gosh for 4weeks. In the mean time we have been moved from our local hospital to one 130miles from home. Where we dont know or trust anyone, have no contact with family and friends. We also cant work so have no income coming in to pay the mortgage. My daughters health is our top priority but everything else seems to be slipping away at the same time. She just needs to be reviewed so she can go on the list, which is traumatic enough for us without all the other problems on top which have not been helped by gosh. Three times we have been told there was a bed for her and 3times on the day we are ment to go they have turned her down.
