"Icu & WARD 221"

About: Royal Stoke University Hospital

Anything else?

In July after A & E then Mau I was transferred to Icu for 8 days after developing peri partum cardiomyopathy in which I had to be on life support & undergo many investigations. When eventually awake the care of all the staff was just second to none they were amazing and people I shall never forget. Upon being stable I was then transferred to Ward 221 where they were just as fantastic especially with my having a 3 week old baby in which I was given a side room for privacy and the chance to finally bond with daughter with no limitation on visiting time. Never once was I made to feel like just a statistic, I highly recommend the Uhns to all. After all I owe them my life x
