"Excellent service for my sick child"

About: North Manchester General Hospital

My child was taken to a and e where we were told he was suffering from DKA and he needed treating urgently, all the staff were fantastic with the way my scared, upset and poorly 13 year old son was treated. He was then transferred to Oldham because there were no HDU beds available again the paramedics treated him with the same respect on the journey to Oldham hospital. He was treated in Oldham hospital for 2 nights and was able to come home after lots of advice and support from nurses, doctors, dietitians and the diabetic nurse who has been a great help as we are adjusting to life with type 1 diabetes.
