"My 10 week old daughter was admitted ..."

About: Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

My 10 week old daughter was admitted to A&E having suffered a traumatic accident.

The team that were on hand were nothing short of brilliant, both in acting incredibly quickly, and as a team to diagnose and remedy her condition. We were seen by a number of specialists, and I (being there alone with my daughter) was both comforted, and had calm explanations of what was happening by the both the nurses, radiologist, aneathatist, peadiatric doctors, and all other professionals that attended.

On being admitted to the Rainbow ward, again, we were looked after by the calm, helpful and caring nursing team, for whom it seemed, nothing was a 'silly' question, or too much trouble.

Anything else?

I am sincerely grateful to both the A&E team, particularly a nurse and her colleague, for the quick and thorough treatment that they gave to my little girl. My heartfelt thanks to you all.
