About: Horton General Hospital

Our three year old son had injured his head and eye while playing at home so we took him to the GP and were referred to go straight down to Horton hospital to have him checked out. The staff were wonderfully kind and patient as our child is scared of doctors and so was a little tricky being examined. It was thought that instead of the symptoms being due to the head injury that they could be the beginning of a virus. In order to err on the side of caution he was given a weeks 'pass' so that if he had any further concerning symptoms we could be brought him straight back to the hospital. Although we didn't need to take him back in, having a pass was such great reassurance. We were very appreciative of all the staff did for us.
