Response from Cathy White, Patient Experience Lead, Patient Experience Team, Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust

Dear Mrs B1,

It must have been very frightening to witness your young son almost choke and it highlights how important it is as a parent to have basic first aid training. Thank you for sharing your story with us and do please be assured that your appreciation will be passed on to our team in the children's emergency department.

With best wishes,

Cathy White
