I live in Downend and have a daughter who has needed hospital treatment before. Used to go to frenchay and were great and took 10 mins to get there. Apparently southmead will not treat children, did not know this until took my child there and saw signs saying no one under 16 will be seen. Have to drive to the children's hospital. Can you clarify if in an emergency my young daughter needs urgent help and I am close to southmead will she be seen. As the children's hospital is terrible to get to everyone to grid lock traffic. I have never heard of a major hospital that refuses to take a large proportion of the population. Would appreciate a comment. Thanks John
