About: Royal Manchester Children's Hospital

What I liked

Can't express how happy and grateful we are for the excellent/exemplary care at the Children’s Hospital as an outpatient/inpatient/day case.Thanks especially to the Consultants and all the staff at Ward 84 and the linked Hamematology & Oncology outpatients/day case unit / Bone Marrow Transplant Unit.

What could be improved

1. At weekends for "regulars" with severe conditions - perhaps lok at ways of streamlining the experiece e.g. when you need regular ad-hoc tranfusions tat the weekend the process of PED -> DCU -> Ward can be exhausting for a child - anything in the region of 10 hours (in contrast to the wonderful daycase unit service on weekdays).

1. Perhaps the website should have mopre up to date information re this clinical areas - to promote the good work and help with future funiding for the research.
