"Child hospitalised with asthma"

About: Hull Royal Infirmary / Paediatrics

(as a parent/guardian),

My 7 year old attended A and E with breathing problems, and chest pain. The team responded quickly and were kind. As she had no history of asthma we were upset and shocked when she ended up in hospital for 4 days.

The care was excellent, I would like to particularly mention Helen the asthma nurse who saw her at least twice a day in hospital and now sees her as an outpatient.

The whole family were reassured by the great care that my daughter has had. Thankyou! X
