"Inexperienced Doctors"

About: St Mary's Hospital (London)

My daughter (14 months old) was taken in PICU first Consultant put in a central line on her thigh next day they said it' was too short so they put a longer one in. Third day when I came in I was told to go to parents room as they needed put another line in as the one put in day before wasn't working.

They changed the lines everyday for three days we were in PICU. This was really painful for my little one. It really upset me to see my daughter go through this due to lack of experience amongst consultant and Doctors. Great Ormond Street hospital is best kids you get best care and they keep patients suffering to minimum. St Marys worst hospital to be in with your kids.

Never bring your kids here!
