Whittington A&E – Story 25

S’s story:

My story re the Whittington is that last year my two year old granddaughter started limping and it is was discovered that she had an infection in the bone in her leg. The diagnosis took a week to sort out and during that time she had to stay in the hospital and be sedated three times to have scans to try and work out what was wrong. the staff were fantastic and if she had not received the care and attention that she did she could have lost her leg. She had to be treated with intravenous antibiotics daily for six weeks. This meant a trip to the Whittington daily for my daughter with her daughter and a four month old baby.
