"Excellent care throughout hospital"

About: Basildon University Hospital

I wanted to say a huge thank you for caring for my Son once again. He arrived by ambulance in resus and from the start i knew he was in safe hands. He went on to stay on Puffin ward. A special mention to the play team for keeping him busy with the ipad in resus and for their interesting dancing!!! Also a big thank you to a member of staff from Puffin, Kavan had been on the ward before and they remembered him and showed great kindness. From start to finish he had excellent care he wasnt once scared. Its made me want to achieve my dream of becoming a healthcare assistant on your childrens ward maybe im too old though at 32!! I cant find the way to start, any advice would be great!!
