About: Basildon University Hospital

My 8 year old daughter had to have her first blood test on wednesday. I cannot praise the 3 nurses that dealt with her highly enough, she was very nervous and they put her at ease straight away, explaining what was going to happen and then distracting her while taking the blood...she didn't even realise it was happening until the nurse said she was all done! Brilliant work well done, as a result my daughter isn't nervous about hospitals anymore!! Thank you all so much!

Response from Basildon University Hospital

We are pleased that your Daughters recent experience of care at Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust was a good one. A first experience can be so important, and we're glad she had a good one. We will forward on your kind words to the Paediatric Nurses. Thank you for taking the time to leave your comments.
