I just wanted to praise the staff at QEUH maternity outpatient department. Having come back from my 20 week scan I cannot express fully how lovely, kind and caring everyone was.During Covid-19 pandemic when things are different, challenging and unexpected at points, this service seems to take everything in its stride and doing it with a smile from the staff you see in the corridors through to the cheery reception staff!A particular highlight was my sonographer - Leanne (apologies if I've spelt your name wrong!). I had the good luck to have her scan me at 13 weeks and 20 weeks. The care and compassion shown by Leanne was amazing. From a cheery manner on showing me to the room, the detailed and clear explanations of what she was scanning for and what she found through to answer any questions I had. All while having a conversation and a few laughs along the way.
During this somewhat draughting time being unable to have my husband with me at scan appointments Leanne had me totally at ease and smiling.
