"Respiratory Department"

About: Northern General Hospital

My daughter has been under the care of this hospital for respiratory problems and I couldn't rate her care high enough. Not only have they been very helpful they have also recognised she needed help in dealing with her illness emotionally and her consultant referred her on as they were very concerned about her overall well being. This is outside the consultant's area but looked on her as a whole rather than just a respiratory problem.

Response from Deborah Hopkinson, Patient Experience Co-ordinator, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

I am sorry to hear that you daughter has respiratory problems but it sounds as if she is getting holistic care in order to help her.

I will pass on your comments to the respiratory team as I am sure that they will be pleased to hear about the difference that they are making.

Thank you for taking the time to post your comments on Patient Opinion.

Kind regards
