"maternity ward"

About: University Hospital Of North Durham

Anything else?

I had my baby last week in Durham and cannot thank the staff enough for the care and treatment we received. The ward sister was amazing and even came to see us on the ward the next day before we went home. After having my baby I needed some treatment in theatre. There were a couple of emergencies that night so it took a little longer than we would have liked to get down there but we were kept informed of the situation and the theatre staff again were all excellent. Sadly earlier in the year I had to attend the hospital for a scan to confirm an early miscarriage. The staff that dealt with us that day were amazing and very caring.
