"Giles Malone, admission for epileptic fit 14th Feb..."

About: Arrowe Park Hospital

Whilst up from Surrey visiting relatives on the Wirral, at about 21.00 hours our son Giles suffered an epileptic fit which was unexpected and a great shock to us all. The paramedic arrived amazingly quickly in a matter of a few minutes closely followed by the ambulance. Their care, professionalism, concern and attitude in treating Giles was exemplary in every aspect. On arrival at Arrowe Park A&E we were seen very quickly and the nurse and doctor looked after our son in a thorough, caring and efficient manner before being able to discharge him later that night. Please pass on our thanks to all concerned.
