"Children's Emergency Unit is amazing!"

About: Good Hope Hospital

I had to go to A and E with my 2 year old last weekend for a head wound and was surprised to see that there is a new children's emergency unit. I could not be happier with this unit. It was lovely for children with lots of toys and children's films on a screen (my son didn't want to leave); the staff were sooo lovely and they saw us so quickly that I didn't even have to pay parking fees. I had to revisit the hospital 2 more times over the weekend, as my pain in the bottom son kept on tampering with his wound, and the unit was as wonderful each time. Thank you for being so lovely Good Hope.

Dear Mrs Sandford,

thank you very much for your response regarding the Children's A&E department, I hope your son is feeling much better now and leaving his wound alone. I will certainly pass on your feedback to the team.

Kind regards
