"Thank you to all the staff"

About: Heartlands Hospital / Paediatrics

(as a parent/guardian),

My daughter had a knee injury and within a couple of days became ill. I took her to out of hours doctors and they sent her to children's unit at the Heartlands Hospital to where tests was carried out.

Within a couple of hours my daughter was taken for a knee flush and test, coming back where she was seriously ill (strep a pvl phenomenon along with bone infection).

After a long 3 months in hospital, my daughter was allowed home. Thank you to all the staff on ward 15 & 16, for all the care and professional team work. My daughter has made a good recovery.
