"amazing Doctors and nurses on liver intensive..."

About: King's College Hospital (Denmark Hill)

They saved my son's life, their expertise, their professionalism, their kindness I'll never forget.

My son had multiple organ failure , he was put in an induced coma whilst his organs and his swollen brain had time to recover..there was never any guarantees but after 12 days and his organs slowly recovering, he woke up slowly and retained all of his faculties ( we were told with his brain being swollen,he could suffer brain damage)

He was moved to HDU for a day and then was on Dawson ward for the next 9 days until his discharge..today he is back at uni and is very well.

At probably the darkest time of our lives when we didn't know from hour to hour whether he would survive, I will never forget these doctors and nurses and also the other families with loved ones on the unit, thank you , thankyou, thankyou.

Thank you for your kind comments about the care and treatment that your son received whilst under the care of King's.

It's great to hear that he's recovered so well and is now back at University.

It is always good to hear when we get things right for our patients.

Thanks for taking the time to post your feedback.
