"Special Care for My Special Needs Daughter"

About: Leeds General Infirmary / Accident and emergency

(as a relative),

Thank you Childrens A&E at the LGI for your excellent and caring service after my daughter, who has special needs, was brought in scared and distressed after her first severe epileptic fit. Despite being extremely busy every staff member who saw us showed kindness and consideration and treated my daughter with dignity and respect. I saw this same consideration time and time again for other children and their parents during our time in the unit. Nobody wants to spend time in an A&E, but you made this experience a lot easier than it could have been.
