"Awesome treatment..."

About: Royal Derby Hospital

Anything else?

My daughter was admitted with severe abdo pain last night at about 20:30. She was immediately assessed by a Dr from start to finish the standard of care she revived was just incredible. HCAs, Nursing staff, Registras, xray, sonogram, cleaners, porters, every single person behaved in an incredibly caring and professional way. Surgical Assessment was done quickly and she could not have been treated better if she were the queen of England. This makes me happy, to know TGAT we have the NHS and such a wonderful hospital in Derby. I am proud of this and humbled by the living kindness shown by a the staff here. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
