"Empathic care following tonsillectomy"

About: Birmingham Children's Hospital / Ear, Nose and Throat

(as a parent/guardian),

I will like to express my sincere praise to Staff nurse Dan and Mr Koa's registrar following the outstanding care provided to my son.

Dan your caring and empathetic approach made it easier to wait our turn. You gave us clear support and after care support and the information that was clarified made it easier for us to care for our son after the procedure.

I wish I knew how to nominate you for nurse of the year because your caring nature is highly appreciated by both children and parents. Thank you once more.

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about the outstanding and compassionate care you and your son had at Birmingham Children's Hospital.

It is our aim to provide every child with the best experience and care, so it is always a delight to hear positive feedback. I will make sure your comments are shared with Dan and Mr kou's Registrar, who I know will be equally delighted to read them and proud to know they made such a difference to your son's experience of hospital.

Thank you again and I hope your son has gone on to make a full recovery.

With kind regards,
