"Dreadful treatment for my little girl"

About: The Royal Victoria Infirmary

I am so disappointed with the care that my 6 year old has recieved. Lack of compassion and interest in a child who has acute pain and is awaiting surgery. Delays in referring on,sending scan results and communicating with other professionals involved. Thank god she is not bring operated on at the rvi Go elsewhere if you can
