....but behind that, it is a very unorganised and uncaring hospital.
My son has been treated here as inpatient, and while a few years ago, the standard seemed very high, it seems to have gone flying downhill very fast!
Different doctors arrive for duty and all say different things while not one really seems to know exactly and nothing gets done very fast at all. If another dept get a call to visit the patient, it can sometimes take days to weeks to get them to see him.
Kids are left in pain through no urgency to issue medicine or treatment.
I'd seriously consider not sending your child here if there is another hospital that can offer the treatment they need.
Search Google and you will see that their slogan 'the child first and always' is just a brand statement.
