"Care of my 6 year old son - A & E, Surgery and..."

About: Furness General Hospital

Anything else?

I would like to thank you for the care that my son received this week at Furness General Hospital. He was transferred from Kendal for pain in his testicle. I later found out that the time frame for sorting this is 6-8 hours for a good outcome. He was assessed at Kendal and transferred for further investigation to Barrow. He was immediately seen on arrival at A & E, taken to theatre for surgery then onto the Childrens ward for recovery. Luckily as he was dealt with so quickly they were able to save his testicle. I cant thank you enough. Every member of staff was efficient, helpful and so kind to my son. I wish I could thank each one. My son is recovering well at home now. A little sore but on the mend. We have been on the childrens ward a few time in the last few 6 years and the staff are fabulous, can highly recommend. Thank you all so much.
