"a big thank you"

About: Bristol Royal Hospital For Children

I was put the adolescent ward for an operation. From the moment I was in my bed , the medical and nursing staff were fantastic. My pain was well managed, but also I was treated with dignity and respect at all times. Throughout my stay of 14 1/2 days, i was treated brilliantly.

Every member of staff that we came into contact with could not have been more friendly or helpful. The consultant took time to explain and involve us in the decision making progress and rang afterwards to discuss an additional test needed. The hospital itself is lovely - really well designed with toys everywhere and every effort made to make kids as comfortable as possible. Really positive experience - thank you.

Got to say that the docs and nurses at the children's hospital have been fab, really couldn't have got through the past two weeks without their support, understanding and expertise.

It's at times like these that you really appreciate our nhs and the work that all the staff do, from cleaners through to surgeons.

The procedures and the machines were first class and I'm thankfull for the society we live in where its possible to do such amazing operations and work with such a difficult government holding the purse strings. Thank you for such a good stay in hospital. Now the long road of recovery. All the staff were very helpful.
