"Kingfisher Children's Ward"

About: Dorset County Hospital

My 6 month old grandson has recently been very ill and has been in Kingfisher Children's Ward for 9 days. I cannot fault anyone involved on the Ward, they were so kind and thoughtful to my daughter who obviously had to stay with him, and were so friendly and professional it made what was a very worrying time a lot more bearable for us all, especially the siblings. Absolutely 100% for care and professional ability. Thank you all.

Response from Dorset County Hospital

I am so pleased to hear that you had such a positive experience when your grandson was in Kingfisher Ward. I know how very upsetting it can be to see your child or grandchild in pain and whilst we all work in for the NHS, we always try and remember that hospitals can be frightening places for children and their families. I hope your grandson is on the mend and back to his usual self soon. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience and the kind words about our wonderful staff, I will share your feedback with the team. Best wishes, Alison Tong, Director of Nursing, Dorset County Hospital
