"Great care for my 1 year old with a chest..."

About: University Hospital (Coventry)

We were brought to UHCW in an ambulance as my daughter was struggling with her oxygen levels.

The staff were calming, professional, thorough, prompt and friendly.

We had no waiting time and the same nurse and doctor from triage onwards.

Everyone we met both took her illness seriously but managed to be reassuring and comforting at the same time.

We were discharged within 2 hours.

Thank you to all the staff and the NHS, free at the point of access as of 24/09/2015.
