Parents of girl with rare genetic disease worried by Fairfield Hospital carePosted April 17, 2015
A FAMILY whose daughter suffers from a rare genetic disease have expressed serious concerns over a lack of paediatric care provisions at Fairfield Hospital.
Annabelle Griffin suffers from Vascular Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (VEDS), an incurable condition that means she is at daily risk of her internal organs and arteries spontaneously rupturing.
And after the six-year-old took a fall at their Brandlesholme home recently, parents Sarah and Jared were shocked to learn that there are no paediatric consultants based at Fairfield.
