"Excellent paediatric care!"

About: Calderdale Royal Hospital / Paediatrics

(as a parent/guardian),

When my daughter was born she required some additional care for jaundice, reflux and other allergies. These might seem trivial in retrospect but never the less when your new born baby requires attention within hospital (4 times in 4 weeks) we were upset and worried.

It was the exceptional care on ward 3c at Calderdale that got us through. Even though the ward had to deal with some serious illness with the babies, they still treated us with the same care, understanding and empathy no matter what was wrong with our daughter.

Excellent holistic approach too, they helped with breastfeeding, bathing and gave excellent emotional and physical support to myself (mum) making time and effort to sit with me and discuss options. As a new mum some options were difficult, the nurse remained neutral and professional at all times,

We don't know how we wouldn't have coped without the help of all staff on the ward, in particular, Emma, Beth and Hannah who spent extra time with us. Excellent communication, care, compassion, competence displayed by every member of staff. A exemplar ward on the NHS!
