"Concern over after care from GP and Sheffield Children's"

About: Sheffield Children's Hospital / Ear, Nose and Throat

(as the patient),

I took my daughter to Sheffield Children's hospital for a tonsillectomy, she stayed on S2. She loved Kev the entertainer, he was great. However, while she was in hospital she got a slight cut at the end of her nose. I went to the doctor's 6 days after the operation with a nose bleed. He said leave it 2 full weeks, if it's not better, go back to hospital. When I went back 2 weeks later to hospital, she got impetigo. I feel my doctor left her suffering for a week longer than what he should have, and I think he failed to notice the infection. It should have taken Tonia 2 weeks to get over her operation. 4 weeks later she was back to normal.
