"Fantastic experience at children's emergency department"

About: Royal Derby Hospital / Paediatrics

(as a parent/guardian),

My son bumped his head badly at school and wanted me to get him checked out as he described some symptoms of concussion.

I took him to CED where we were seen quickly and my son was seen by Gareth in a red uniform. He is absolutely excellent with children and reassured us all was well whilst explaining what I should watch for.

A fantastic patient experience delivered by someone who is confident and capable.

Whilst I hope we never need to return for anything if we do I would be delighted for our family to be looked after by Gareth.
