"Paediatric Diabetes Service"

About: Warrington Hospital

We brought our 15 year old son into the hospital with varied symptoms. The hospital was extremely quick to diagnose Type 1 diabetes and started treatment the same day. Practical advice was given immediately and we have had easy access to nursing care and dieticians every day since. It feels as though a large amount of resource has been dedicated to helping us through an extremely difficult period. This resource has been allocated to us immediately and has included home visits and telephone advice available to us every day since diagnosis. I cannot fault this service. It has been of the highest standard and I would highly recommend this to anyone.

Thank you for your very kind comments about the service which I have passed on to the diabetes team. They always try their very best to give the best care possible and so its good to receive your feedback that things have gone well. I hope your son is feeling well, please pass on our best wishes to him.

Thank you!
