"Skylark ward were absolutely fantastic"

About: Kettering General Hospital

My four year old recently was admitted for the removal of her tonsils and adenoids.

She had previously had a bad experience following admission to a different ward in the hospital and was very nervous. Everything about her stay on skylark was first rate. She was kept calm and happy and everything went smoothly. Even the consultant stopped to have a tea party with her and came back to collect the picture she drew before they left for the day.

She came back to the ward with her tiara still on and was allowed to keep her comforter toy with her.

Care here on this ward was fantastic I was incredibly impressed.

We are so glad that your daughter had a positive experience. We work very hard to ensure that every child’s hospital stay has this outcome.

We are hope she enjoyed her tea party and is feeling better now!
