"ED staff professional and supportive"

About: Chesterfield Royal Hospital

My 13yr old son was recently knocked down by a car on his way to school . Following a telephone call I rushed to Ed and got there before the ambulance . The staff in ED where absolutely outstanding and calmed me down so I was able to greet my very scared son without causing him more anxiety seeing me upset. They looked after him and me excellently and he is home fit and well and thinks the hospital is fantastic . A big thank you from us, to all the staff in the department you do a great job in difficult circumstances

Response from Chesterfield Royal Hospital

So glad to hear that your son has recovered from his ordeal. I was really pleased to see that our wonderful ED team took care of you as well whilst you waited for your son to arrive at the hospital. I can think of nothing more frightening! Thank you for taking the time to pass on your comments, which I will make sure are shared with my colleagues. Kind regards Sarah Turner-Saint, Head of Communications
