My eighteen year old daughter was involved in a moped accident overseas. On returning home to the UK we were recommended to see Dr Colette Griffin as she specialises in traumatic brain injury. It was the most positive experience we'd had since her accident a month earlier. Dr Griffin took time to really listen to her and carefully explain that everything and nothing was normal with a brain injury. She put our minds at rest in a way no-one else had been able to. My daughter was subdued in the hours following her appointment as it sunk in that she was at the beginning of her recovery rather than the end. However, by the following morning she began to rally and never really looked back from that point. Just an hour of Dr Griffin’s time was the most important and helpful part of Libby's recovery and she starts University later this month nearly fully recovered.
The traumatic brain injury service at St George's Hospital is incredible. Our 25 year old daughter was run over by a car, and was flown to St George's. She had a severe brain injury, a fractured pelvis and smashed bones in her face, arms and legs. Dr Griffin and her team have been fabulous and have cared wonderfully for our daughter since her admission. She is now undergoing neurorehabilitation, and is getting ready to go home. We can't thank Dr Griffin and her team enough for giving us our daughter back.
Dr Griffin has been a great support to our family. My young brother had a horrific head injury and was flown to St George's Hospital. We have been very impressed by the care given to him by Dr Griffin and her specialist team. If only every hospital had such a service.
Dr Griffin is an inspiration. Not only is she an international expert in her field, but she also has a wonderful bedside manner. She truly cares for her patients and she is hugely respected by patients and their families alike. Well done: what a star!
