Response from The Queen Elizabeth Hospital

Thank you for sharing your story on the website. It sounds as though you had a very stressful day and I am glad that the staff in the Emergency Department were able to provide you and your family with the support and care you obviously needed. I will make sure your comments are fed back to the Emergency Department. I hope that your new arrival has settled into the family and that everyone has recovered from the excitement and tension of the day.
