"Fantastic treatment on Nightingale Ward"

About: Chesterfield Royal Hospital

Our daughter was admitted on 3rd February from our GP. We sent the evening on the ward while she was diagnosed. All the staff were brilliant, calm, considerate and professional. All the staff were excellent, including the Health Care Assistant, who took us to xray, the xray technician, who made the experience very interesting when my daughter was frightened. The junior doctor and consultant and doctor we saw had such a good approach and bed side manner with my daughter. The staff looked after us too, with consideration and cups of tea! We had quite a wait, but the ward was busy and we appreciated this. A really big thank you to all the staff. My daughter is getting better.

Response from Chesterfield Royal Hospital

Thank you for your post which I will pass on to all the staff down on Nightingale Ward - they'll really appreciate your comments. It's lovely to read that you felt your daughter was put at ease when she was frightened and that you also felt looked after by the ward team, but more importantly, it's good to read that she is getting better - which is the main thing. Kindest regards Sarah Turner-Saint, head of communications
