About: Whitworth Hospital

We were on holiday and our son had an allergic reaction to some food he had eaten. We were pointed in the direction of the Whitworth. The nurses were fantastic and helped our son immediately, who was then transferred to A&E.

What a fantastic service, nothing was too much trouble.
