"Praise given where praise is very much due!"

About: Darent Valley Hospital

My son was discharged today 7/10/14 he was admitted on Wednesday with severe headache, rash sickness and other symptoms. Yes to start with as expected there was a wait but once seen by the doctor in childrens A&E we were sent to Willow PAU seen by an amazing registrar who was 1st class. We were taken to have bloods taken which proved a little difficult but didn't phase the team. After that a very professional doctor spoke to me with another gentleman wish I knew their names. Daniel was put on saline and the necessary meds straight away - I would like to say thank you so much to to everybody who were just brilliant in Willow ward from the very polite cleaner, the lady who seemed to always be there, the nurse who normally worked on the stroke unit, two doctors, just all of you! People are always to ready to complain and not to praise... there are lots of staff I haven't mentioned but you were all great you know who you are! Thank you all.

Response from Darent Valley Hospital

Dear Daniel's Mum Thank you for this fabulous review of our children's services, all departments and staff have been notified of your kind words. This must have been an extremely distressing time for your and your family and it is always lovely to read 1st class feedback such as this. We do hope that Daniel is feeling better now and back running around like all boys love to do. With best wishes The Communication Team Darent Valley Hospital
