"Brilliant care from Dermatology"

About: Pilgrim Hospital / Dermatology

(as a parent/guardian),

My Son was finally referred to the dermatology team at pilgrim, this was after an admission to the children's ward. On first meeting the dermatology team, I was a little apprehensive as all my worries and concerns was over looked by my GP, told it was just "eczema", how wrong they was! We first met nurse Nicola, what a brilliant lady she is, shes helped us more than anyone! She has given us the much needed support, knowledge and treatment plan! She has always been at the end of the phone. Gone one step above the rest. My son was around 6 months old on first meeting Nicola and the team. He is now coming up to his 2nd birthday. I really was at my whits end before meeting Nicola and Dr Scharrar. There was no light at the end of the tunnel, I now see light and that's thanks to them! Please pass on my thanks!
