Response from King's College Hospital (Denmark Hill)

I am very sorry that you failed to receive an earlier acknowledgement of your posting on this website. As the experience that you describe occurred on a Saturday I hope that during the following days you were able to speak to a senior nurse about your concerns or to our PALS service. I will retrospectively inform the Matron of your comments.
