"Excellent service at the Childrens Resource Centre"

About: Darent Valley Hospital

I took my Granddaughter to the Childrens Resource Centre on Friday 20 March. The Centre was extremely busy. The service we received - from the Receptionist, the Consultant, the Nurses, the Phlebotomist - was extremely good. My Granddaughter, who is just 8, was treated as an individual with individual needs. Every step of her care on that day was explained clearly at a level suitable for both my Granddaughter and me. A blood test which was required, which could have been a traumatic experience, was provided with clear explanation and carried out professionally. I am confident that the handling of this procedure will allay any fears should further tests be required in the future. Please pass on my thanks to everyone at the Centre.

Thank you for this glowing review of our Paediatric services, your very kind words have been passed onto all those involved in your granddaughters care. It was lovely to read how clearly explained the blood test procedure was relayed to her and that it was carried out so professionally.
