"My grandsons care"

About: Royal Alexandra Hospital / Paediatrics

(as a relative),

My grandson was urgently refered to the assessment area of ward 15 by his gp.

Both myself and his mother were understandably anxious when we arrived, but were immediately put at ease by the nurse who looked after him, Victoria. Although the unit was busy, she made us feel like nothing was too much trouble and even went to find him a Thomas the tank dvd (his favourite! ).

Fortunately we were able to be discharged home later that afternoon after we were seen by a lovely Dr, whose name unfortunately I cannot remember, and while I hope that we do not need to visit the ward again I feel confident that both my daughter and grandson would be well taken care of if we had to.

I would be grateful if my thanks could be passed on to the team in the ward, but in particular to Victoria and also Allison who we also met. I could not have asked for better, friendlier care.
