"My son's treatment at Newcastle RVI"

About: The Royal Victoria Infirmary / Paediatrics

(as a parent/guardian),

Having visited my GP with concerns over my 3 year old sons health, I was advised by him to take him to Newcastle's paediatric unit. My GP was concerned he had a rare autoimmune disease after speaking on the phone to the paediatricians.

He gave me a note & advised me to go to ward 6 at the RVI as soon as was convenient.

My experience was fantastic. All the staff were just so fantastic. The facilities were immaculate and my son and our family were made to feel as comfortable as we possibly could in the situation.

Many thanks to all staff involved for their amazing work.
