"Nut Allergy"

About: Weston General Hospital

I would just like to thank everyone who was involved in the care of my 5 year old Son last Week after we arrived in A&E on Wednesday evening. I brought him in due to a severe allergic reaction after eating a walnut...the staff could not have been more caring, sympathetic to my sons needs and fast-acting.. all moved so swiftly to get him well. From the Receptionist who took our info running behind us as we were whisked in for my son to be assessed, to every single Nurse and Doctor that we dealt with in A&E and in the Children's ward, you were all fantastic! Special big thank you to the Nurse and the doctor for all your advice and the wonderful care you gave him. It was such a frightening time as had never experienced it before and his allergy was not known to us until that day. Just thank you to everyone for being so quick to react and for making him well.
