About: Frenchay Hospital

Anything else?

My son was saved by the amazing staff on the children's ward, they picked up on a very small symptom that they could of blamed on the tablets he was given, all the other tests they done with him he passed with flying colours but although his symptom was very small they said they don't take risks so scanned him anyway and within 20 mins he was rushed down for emergency surgery and I was told if it would of gone unnoticed he would not have lived through the night, he had a bleed on the brain the size of a tennis ball yet was sat up talking just before, passed all their tests but complained his sight was fuzzy, I can't tell you how amazing the staff are, from the nurse that alerted the doctor to the surgeon that removed he clot, the after care was just as amazing!
