About: Calderdale Royal Hospital

Today I had an appointment with my daughter in the childrens clinic for a echocardiogram heart scan. I was disgusted that the paediatrician who did the scan told us that they were not actually a cardiologist, but someone that is just interested in the heart. I would recommend that if your child is seriously ill never take them to this hospital. My daughter (9 months) was put on reduced fluids and had to start drinking her baby milk like a newborn all other again for no reason at all. The doctors told us that she needs to have a reduced fluids because of her heart condition and when we saw the doc today they said I have no idea why she has been on reduced fluids for 2 months when she doesn't have to be. I am no doubt taking her to another hospital to be treated as I am absolutely disgusted with this one!
