Our daughter has been under the cardiac team since she was a few weeks old back in 2001. We are so grateful to all the staff at this wonderful hospital - we are under no doubt without their wonderful care she wouldn't be here now. Leah has had several open heart surgeries - where we were told every step of the way what would be happening next. We have also had whole family support especially from Helen the play specialist!! We often talk about the fun times we had at this hospital - rather than the awful stressful time we could remember. The staff here are second to none and we are very sad to now leave to be transferred to the adult QE hospital.
After 17 years of being a patient at Birmingham Children's Hospital, I look back and there has never been a time where I have not wanted to go return. The staff on all wards and units are wonderful and take huge amounts of consideration into the lives and conditions of vulnerable patients, families and siblings who come and visit. I was hugely fortunate that I have had my Heart Doctor for 17 years and he has been incredible. He has not just taken thought to me but to my whole family too. He has always asked after us and been 100% loyal to his job. I give huge thanks to Ward 11 and ITU where I spent most of my 2 continuous years as an in-patient between birth (2000) and leaving as a permanent patient (2002). All staff were amazing and even now, I still see some of those life-saving heros who ensured I was here today which makes me so lucky to be as I am today, 17 years later. Now, as a volunteer at BCH, I couldn't be more proud to be a member and patient of the Hospital. The rest, as they say, is history. To now see it from a different point of view, I can see the exact reason why people want their children and families to be looked after there. Thank you, Birmingham Children's Hospital. Here's to another great 150 years!
