"My son had open heart surgery ..."

About: Birmingham Children's Hospital

(as a relative),

What I liked

My son had open heart surgery here when he was 4 days old. Understandably we were really anxious and the staff were wonderful and answered every question many times over. We were found accomodation really quickly and our cardiac liasion sister was fab!

What could be improved

If you are in for any length of time, you will spend a small fortune in the restaurant. Gets very expensive.

Anything else?

All the nurses do an exception job but are all overworked. More nurses needed!
