"Gratitude"

About: St George's Hospital (Tooting) (London)

My little daughter(8 years old) was seriously ill and transferred to st George's for specialist care. We were there for fifteen days and continue with daily treatment at the moment. The ENT team and paediatric infectious diseases team were just wonderful throughout and we will forever be grateful for what they did for our daughter. The doctors we encountered were simply first class, especially in their communication skills, care and compassion. The nursing staff I found to be just. 'Ok' at best and really poor at worst. Overall, st George's did so much for us, it's almost too hard to say how eternally grateful we are to the hospital. But the credit goes to the doctors in my view. Nurses are falling sadly way behind.
