About: Great Ormond Street Hospital Central London Site

Our son has had a major spinal operation this week at GOSH, he is currently on sky ward I want to congratulate you all for seeing me and my husband as joint patents threw ought our stay, not once has any one commented that our son has two dad's and we are always treated as his parents threw out, this is from the time of his operation with the pre op staff and wonderful volunteer, even when I was in tears, to the nurse who was with our son in recovery. Can you please please , pass our comments on as your staff could teach other hospitals in London where they have given me a second look when I have said yes I am his dad, and they have said but his dad is already here how parents in any shape or form are simply parents who are frightened and anxious about their children . Thank you Brian and Patrick Also the kitchen staff on ward who take the menus fab is not the word
