"The care I received on the maternity ward was great."

About: Tameside General Hospital / Maternity care

(as the patient),

The care I received on the maternity ward was great. Whilst I was in labour the midwife who was looking after me was really helpful and looked after me really well.

When I was transferred up onto a ward they were also really helpful with me and my baby.

The only thing I didn't like was the visiting times for partners, I think they should get a bit longer.
