Response from Darent Valley Hospital

Congratulations on the birth of your daughter and thank you for the glowing review of our maternity and SCBU services. We can totally understand how frightening this must have been for you all, especially having to be transferred from the hospital you were expecting to give birth in, but were so please to read that the outcome was so positive. We look forward to welcoming you back for your next baby but in the mean time wish you all the very best at what must be a very busy time for you all. Kind regards The Communication Team Darent Valley Hospital
