"Paediatric department"

About: East Surrey Hospital

I bought my 3 month old daughter in after my concerns about her health.

The nurses on arrival to the paediatric children's department were amazing and are a credit to the nursing profession.

Nurse Bryant offered me a space to meet individual needs of myself and my baby, so we could have skin to skin contact during her time of despair.

They were helpful and really listened to my concerns and made every effort to reassure me.

I would recommend the two nurses on shift that night as outstanding staff and am so grateful for their care and understanding.
