"Postscript to "A very traumatic experience""

About: Northwick Park Hospital

Anything else?

Further to my last posting ("A very traumatic experience") - I should have explained that the three days of the child being given oral liquid sedation (prior to possible MRI scans) all took place within a period of one week. It is now one week since the third failed MRI scan attempt and the ward has made no contact regarding a repeat scan. The child was forcefully administered with three types of medication orally on each occasion of sedating her and although they have asked for the names of the medicines, the dosages and quantities administered, the ward has failed to provide these details.
