"You reassured an anxious mum"

About: Tameside General Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as a parent/guardian),

Attended Tameside General Hospital A& E department in May with my 4 year old daughter. The department was very busy. I just wanted to commend the medical staff for their patience, kindness, good manner and professionalism. More importantly reassuring an anxious mum (that's me, who is also a nurse), that it was ok to take my daughter to A & E and more importantly if I was still concerned that I could take her back.
