I took my son to pembury following the GP's advice from out of hours GP service at Maidstone hospital.
Was told to go straight to paediatrics, got there, was greeted by a doctor who showed me where to go. My son was being assessed within 10 minutes. Was advised to keep him in as a precaution and observation in case of meningitis. The registrar, doctor and nurse who was put in a cannula was brilliant reassuring him all the time (whilst screaming). Staff kept me informed at all times. Was put into a clean comfortable room. By them ring my son was walking the ward, which I was weary of due to other sick children, but the sister said no he is fine let him wonder.
Long and short the all staff from clinical support staff to doctors were brilliant - thank you paediatric team!!!
We are lucky to have the NHS!!!
