"We were really lucky"

About: Broomfield Hospital / Endocrinology

(as a parent/guardian),

My daughter became very ill all of a sudden, we where taken to Broomfield Hospital where she was admitted, treated for Gastroenteritis and sent home a few days later. She became ill again, back to Broomfield, this time seriously ill. We where really lucky, saw the same Consultant who recognised my daughter and he very quickly recognised her symptoms, treatment started straight away and a diagnosis of Addison's Disease was made.
