"Excellent service at Eye Casualty and ENT"

We visited the eye casualty one day as my son had a small eye infection.
We were seen and given medication and told to come back if it worsened.
It certainly had the next morning (eye the size of a golf ball) so we returned.
We were seen immediately and initially given oral antibiotics.
Having arrived at 09.00hrs my son had had a CT Scan, diagnosis and was in ENT bed by 12.00hrs on IV antibiotics.
I cannot praise all staff (reception/nurses/doctors and consultants) enough for their professionalism, kindness and excellent work.
My son was on the ward for 6 nights with IV antibiotics and was accessed for the first 2 mornings to see if he needed an operation.
it was agreed on day 3 that the antibiotics were working and so gratefully no operation required.
I would like to say thank you to all involved.
I am sure they are all overworked especially at this difficult time in the NHS but I have nothing but praise for them.
My son is better now after being sent home with 10 days more oral antibiotics.
Once again thanks to all the staff in ENT/Eye casualty and those involved in the CT scan.
