"Visit to A&E with my daughter"

About: Forth Valley Royal Hospital / Accident & emergency

(as a parent/guardian),

Recently in December my daughter had difficulty breathing and was sore around her ribs and chest area. I took her to Larbert A&E.

·The service here was excellent, we only waited half an hour and were seen by a nurse and then a Doctor.  My daughter was thoroughly checked out, It turns out to be inflamed cartilage in her ribs, however she was given many tests to rule out any potential underlying issues. ·We spent a total of 2.5 hrs at the hospital, and at every stage the staff were efficient and professional & explained in detail all the checks that took place and the reasons for these.  The experience left both my daughter an myself relieved and well informed. (& feeling very lucky to have such a service!)

Thank you NHS.

Many thanks for taking the time to post. I am delighted to hear you had a good experience and that we were able to treat your daughter efficiently.

I do hope she is now on the mend.
