Response from Dorset County Hospital

Dear Mrs Smith Thank you for posting such lovely comments on how well the team on Kingfisher cared for your granddaughter, daughter and you. It can be very frightening coming into hospital, especially as a child; I sometimes think that applies even more so for the parents and grandparents. I was so pleased to read your granddaughter was treated kindly and that the staff went out of their way to make her stay as comfortable as possible. It was also lovely to read that they are some of the best nurses you have encountered. I hope your granddaughter is continuing to make a good recovery. I am very grateful to you for taking the time to share your feedback; it will be immensely appreciated especially by the doctors and nurses of the Kingfisher team. Kind regards, Alison Tong, Director of Nursing, Dorset County Hospital.
