"Ward 8 staff - huge thank you"

About: The Royal Victoria Infirmary

My husband and I took our daughter to ward 8 for a surgical procedure. From the second we entered the ward, we were impressed with the professionalism and care of all the staff. The nurses were extremely kind and obviously talented at putting children and young people at ease (and also putting parents at ease!) The doctors were brilliant and even rescheduled their day to accommodate my daughters birthday party that evening - just brilliant. Everyone who worked on the ward had a smile and a kind word - couldn't have asked for any more.
