"Helpful but....."

My wife and I attended the hospital for our 2 year old. We were seen quickly and he was examined. The advice related to a possible viral cause of infllammation. All staff were very professional and helpful. Later that day he begain shivering uncontrollably with a temperature at which we went to PRU against our instincts (it really is a failing hospital despite protestations). Although slower and more like a third world hospital, I have to say the doctor did a more thorough examination and explained some possible causes and to keep him under observation for a couple of days. They also noticed his tonsils were slightly inflamed which was missed in the morning at Q Mary's.
