"fantastic service in challenging circumstances"

About: Ripley Hospital

The staff were amazing and highly skilled. I came in with pains and when they realised I would not be able to travel to Nottingham they helped to deliver my baby in the A&E. What could have been so stressful and scary was made easy by the amazing staff there, as well as the midwifes who attended and the two paramedics. Its a fantastic little hospital a real asset to the community.
