Response from Leighton Hospital

I was extremely sorry to read about your recent experiences with your daughter whilst on the child and adolescent unit. The staff on the unit make every attempt to review the children as soon as possible and provide compassionate and effective care. I am sorry that you do not feel this was what you experienced. I would be more than happy to discuss this with you to understand what we can do to improve care in the future. If you wish me to look into this further then please contact the customer care team with more information and I will get back to you. I would like to thank you for taking the time to comment on NHS Choices and again apologise for your experiences. Andrea Collins Ward Manager, child and adolescent unit
