"Paediatric neurology"

About: The Royal Victoria Infirmary

I have already sent an email to the RVI but have just realised they have this process so I feel I need to comment publicly on the fantastic care my 6 year old son received from the paediatric neurologist. He was very professional and had such a friendly disposition with my son and ourselves. He explained everything really well to us and we felt as if we were involved in every stage of the decision making process. All of our concerns felt valid and he was more than happy to take the time to explain everything to us. The staff in the outpatients department, paediatric anaesthetist (for his MRI) last year, and ward staff have also been fantastic . I really could not fault the care we have received at this hospital and would certainly recommend it to family and friends. Thank you for the excellent care .
