"Emergency treatment for my 7 year old son"

About: Russells Hall Hospital

I don't usually write reviews, however, on this occasion the staff on c2 at Russell's Hall, the consultants and surgeons have been fantastic in every way. My son needed emergency treatment last week, from being admitted to being in theatre was very speedy, efficient and done with professionalism. At every point we were consulted, my son was spoken to like an adult and was informed what action would be taken, in his words, he wasn't worried because he knew they would take care of him, we also knew that too. Also the after care has been brilliant a community nurse has been out to see him, what a wonderful service from the NHS. Thank you for taking care of our precious boy.
