"Nightingale Childrens Ward"

About: Chesterfield Royal Hospital

My wife and I spent a week with our 13 yo son. His case was a little of a mysterious as the MRI and cat scan did not show the problem clearly, his eye swelled and he lay in pain night after night... ( the team could not do enough for him and ourselves, can not fault the care and compassion. However, the team got to the bottom of it after 4 days and operated the same day, he is now making a great recovery at home thanks to a great humain team of doctors and nurse. I can not thank enough all the staff on the Nightingale ward for your kindness, patients and overall professional care. Best wishes...

Response from Chesterfield Royal Hospital

I am so pleased to read that your son is making a great recovery at home - what a relief after such a worrying time. I will make sure your comments are passed on to the Nightingale Team and I am sure they will be just as delighted to hear he's doing well back where he should be - at home. Thank you so much for sharing your story. Kindest regards Sarah Turner-Saint, Head of Communications
