"NICU department and childrens ward"

About: Glenfield Hospital

Our daughter had to be transferred to Glenfield from Manchester when she was just 2 days old for life saving ECMO treatment. This was a very scary time for us but the staff here were amazing and kept is informed at every stage. They answered any questions we had. We stayed in the parents accommodation too and this was great being within the hospital as at any time we wanted to see her we day/middle of the night, she was just round the corner.

She is 6 months old now (Feb 2016) and looking back I dont think they could have done more for us and our daughter. Thank you!!!

Response from Glenfield Hospital

Dear reviewer, thank you for taking the time to review the services you received at Glenfield Hospital.

Your comments have been passed onto all the teams involved.

We are delighted that at this very traumatic time you received all the necessary care and support, with the added bonus of not having to worry about accommodation as you were away from home.

So pleased that after a difficult start your daughter has reached her 6 month mile stone birthday.

Best wishes for continued health, best wishes, Communications Team, Leicester's Hospitals.
