"My son's first operation"

About: Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as a parent/guardian),

My son had a fall at school resulting in a broken wrist and dislocated growth plates which required surgery.

Obviously my son and myself were worried, but from the moment we arrived at A&E through to discharge from Rainbow ward and during the surgery we were treated with kindness, respect and care was to an excellent standard.
