"Amazing staff"

About: Kettering General Hospital

My daughter has been into hospital many times as she suffers with brittle Asthma. I cannot praise enough every single person that works on skylark ward they do an amazing job. I would like to give extra thanks to all of Skylark ward play team who are all very special people. Very special thanks to the staff as they applied for a wish with Rays of Sunshine for my daughter to meet One Direction. And they made her wish come true . She got her wish and had an amazing day she met One Direction asked them a question and had her photo taken with them they also gave her a signed t shirt. Without there kindness and dedication this would have not been something we could have done for her I cant thank them enough. My daughter has a very special bond with them she sees them on the ward and in the clinic she is an amazing lady caring dedicated and very professional whenever my daughter is admitted no matter how poorly she is they are the first person she asks for she is like her guardian angel. Can you please acknowledge the fantastic job the play team do on skylark ward .

Response from Kettering General Hospital

Thank you very much for the lovely comments regarding your daughters stay on Skylark Ward. We know that repeated visits to hospital can be upsetting and we are glad that the ward staff have managed to make these stays as pleasant as possible. The Play Team have built good links with Rays of Sunshine, who are wish granting charity, and it is amazing they were able to grant such a fabulous wish! We are so pleased that your daughter has developed a special bond with the Play Specialist in Outpatients and this demonstrates how when she does have to stay, that there is a familiar face who can be there for her on the ward. Best Wishes Skylark Ward
