About: Addenbrooke's Hospital

My partners son was at this hospital with suspected shunt problems, neurosurgeon completely dismissed this and wouldn't listen to the family's concerns about his behaviour becoming aggressive. Pressure monitor was in for 30 minutes to check for over draining before it broke, or wasn't properly secured! clearly no accurate reading can be diagnosed in this time frame. He is now in another hospital who actually care and are great.
