"Proud to work in the NHS"

About: Good Hope Hospital

We visited A&E at Good Hope on Friday 22nd May with our 3 year old son who was having difficulty breathing & vomiting... Our first contact with the hospital was the receptionist who did not hesitate in sending me round to A&E as they could see I was distressed. It was the first time our little boy had exacerbated asthma & we were terrified.. The care & attention we received by the clinical staff was outstanding...this continued on CAU & throughout the night until discharge the next day.. They all took time out & I no they went well above & beyond to look after us. Our little boy was treated so well & he relaxed because of the atmosphere.. I have worked in the NHS for 28 years & never have I felt prouder.. Forgive me for not knowing the names if everyone as we would really like to thank each one of you.. Thank you from me, my husband & especially our little one from the bottom of our hearts for making us feel safe & helping us to look after our precious little angel. XX
