"Treatment for 7 year old son"

About: Russells Hall Hospital

You can't fault the care that my 7 year old received. He was admitted via my gp to have blood test as he had a lump on his neck. The nurses were reassuring and treated both my son and I with dignity. The pediatrician that was on that night made sure that both of us had something to eat as it was during the evening when he was admitted, and I was 8 months pregnant at the time. If any of my children need hospital care again, I would always prefer to have them admitted here.
