"Wheelchair"

About: Sunderland Royal Hospital

I find it disgusting that my grandson's mother can not borrow a wheelchair for him, it is not her fault that south Tyneside do not have a children's ward so he had to go to Sunderland. He has a full cast on his leg she needs one with a leg rest. Not her fault either that she doesn't live in Sunderland. Why should she have to hire one ..

. Totally disgusted with this hospital

He is a child for gods sake
