"Not enough praise for hard work"

About: Scunthorpe General Hospital

I would like to thank A +E staff and the Disney Ward Staff n Doctors for The care and compassion they gave to my 1yr old daughter and I in may this year. After being discharged from Hull infirmary with a very poorly little girl, 2 days before being blue lighted unconscious and fitting to them. Then we decided to get a second opinion after the worst two nights at home with dangerously high temp and the worst rash Ive ever seen. I took her to A+E where she was rushed straight through. After contacting Hull for advice and results etc, I was disusted to be told to go to the GP.... on a sunday at 21.30 pm !. But thanks to Scunthorpe Disney ward they quickly worked out what was wrong and treated her and within 48hrs she was well again. And diagnosed with Scarlet Fever . This could have been a different ending so thankyou once again !
