"special needs child"

About: Bristol Royal Hospital For Children

after visiting twice with our little boy with complex special needs really disappointed with service we received especially during our second and most recent visit. after spending all night and doing various tests was sent home with a still very distressed little boy doctor said perhaps he will feel better at home and have to got plenty of paracetamol. why did she think I brought him in in the first place! if he was settled at home. feel as a parent I was not listened to properly or taken seriously thought the children's hospital was my best chance as sorting little one's distress as they are supposedto have best staff but obviously I was wrong
