"Thank you Cherry ward"

About: Darent Valley Hospital / Maternity

(as the patient),

I recently was in Cherry ward for pains in my side so they wanted to monitor me as I'm also pregnant.

I know staying in hospital is not nice and you wish you didn't have to be there but the staff on Cherry ward made me feel so much better and put a smile on my face everyday.

They would come round in the mornings and be so happy and smiley and just so helpful.

There was one woman, she was so so lovely and jolly singing all the time made my days go by so fast.

They deserve a medal. Thank you Cherry ward for my amazing experience with you. Thank you for the hard work you put in for the NHS.

really is appreciated x
