"brilliant care"

About: Russells Hall Hospital

Anything else?

My 15 year old son came in with appendisitis and the care he recieved was brilliant. Every nurse, doctor, anesthetist he came into contact with was caring, helpful, attentive and re assuring. My son has mild aspergers which we explained to the staff and without fail they took extra care explaining, didn't bat an eye lid when he was eccentric and did everything to make him feel ok. I can't praise them highly enough. Thank you! In April of this year a freind of ours in Zambia lost his son due to appendisitis because they could not afford quick enough treatment. To see the difference here humbles me and makes me very grateful indeed.
