About: Kent & Canterbury Hospital

Dreadful on a few occasions, the most up to date being a doctor requsting for my son who has autism to have a blood test in April after beginning medication that can cause kidney problems and sugar problems after chasing the appointment up over 10 times ive finally today after losing patience asked for my son to get his blood done at the adult clinic how appauling the whole experience has been.

Response from Sally Smith, Chief Nurse and Director Of Quality, East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust

Thank you so much for contacting us. I am so sorry to hear of you and your son's experience. This is certainly not the standard of care we expect. Please feel free to contact me on my email: sally.smith2@nhs.net. I would like to look into what happened and see what we can do to help you. I do hope your son is continuing well on his medication. Best regards, Sally Smith
