"Letting day care children's ward know how..."

About: Royal Preston Hospital

Not sure if I'm writing this to the right people but I hope whoever reads this I hope you get this message over to the department,,,, I live in Leicester , my son lives with his mam in skelmersdale , so it's a long journey for me but the reason I'm writing this because my lad Ricky Read is Autistic so struggles in life at times ,, but I can honestly say that the moment i walked in the hospital I felt at ease,, lovely receptionist to tell me where to go ,, and the minute I walked into the ward with my son I felt comfortable with him ,,,, the staff on the ward were absolutely fantastic,, Everybody looked after my boy so well ,,, one lady in particular who's name I can't remember was superb with my boy ,,, the hospital is fantastic ,, I do hope you will let the ward know how I feel ,, and I don't do this sort of thing but felt I had to ,,, carry on the great work !!!!
