"Admission via AE - 6 year old trauma"

About: University Hospital (Coventry)

My 6 year old has a large cut on his forehead which needed suturing in theatre. We were seen in Children's AE, on the children's ward, in theatres and by the plastic surgery team. Not only did we have fantastic clinical care but also everyone we had contact with worked hard to reassure our son and talk to him as well as to us. Couldn't recommend these teams more highly.
