St Peter's Hospital
Review of Paediatric A&E - St Peter's,
13th January 2022
We were asked to attend A&E as my daughter's haemoglobin was 50. This is low enough for a transfusion, however with the processes via A&E we avoided this and she is being treated as an outpatient.
We were reviewed by 3 senior paediatric professionals, who were clearly very busy. My daughter had repeat bloods. And ECG, and ultrasound and an outpatient appointment given to us within 3 weeks. Lovely staff, clean tidy unit and my daughter was kept informed and calm throughout.
Well done to all NHS staff who continue great work.
We were in the hospital for 9 hours, and our wait was mainly for the appropriate person to give us the clear to go home. However this was probably unavoidable.
