(as the patient),

What I liked

I went to Delivery Suite as my waters broke and I was assisted by a wonderfull team for staff, been as I was on the unit for a long number of hours which ended with me having to go into theatre for a c-section.

The theatre staff were brillant eventhough I was drowsy I was fully alerted by the good service I was recieving .

What could be improved

From day one my antenatal care has been good at day assessement but the down fall and where I am not happy is the Antenatal Clinc the waiting times are way over the timescales not fair.

But again please can you praise the midwifes and other staff that were on duty 3rd july from 6am right the way to sunday 6th july. As I am really happy with the service provided.
