Yellow Alert Stories

Stacey's Story

“My little boy was seen by the GP several times, as well as by the midwife and health visitors. They all said he was jaundiced but I didn't need to worry. I did worry and took him to hospital – he was diagnosed with biliary atresia and was given a Kasai at nine weeks. 

"I was told if it wasn't for me taking him to hospital when I did we may have been looking at a transplant or worse.  As it stands, he is now nearly eight years old and doing great thanks to the liver team at Birmingham Children’s Hospital.”
