"Troublesome two year old"

About: Good Hope Hospital

My child decided that the best place to put a bead was not on the braclets we were making but up his nose. On contacting the GP surgery the receptionist told me to take my child to A&E. One quick trip to the children s A&E department and the bead was removed with no fuss. Friendly staff , efficient service, clean and pleasant environment.

It is a shame that we had to use valuable A&E services to resolve our problem as the technique to remove the bead could have easily been done at the GPs.
