"Superb service"

About: Southmead Hospital

I would like to say a huge thank you to the staff that treated my son today for blood poisoning, they were professional, caring and very helpful, After being at Weston hospital yesterday and sent away with oral antibiotics ,he woke up today far far worse and went to GP who could not believe that Weston had not treated him with intra venous antibiotics, the doctor immediately wrote a letter for him to go to Southmead. There he was treated immediately with intra venous antibiotics and they gave him double the dose of oral antibiotics to what Weston had given him. If not treated so swiftly and properly this could have become a life threatening condition on a 21year old, it doesn't bear thinking about. Thank you so very very much Southmead.
