About: Diana, Princess Of Wales Hospital

I can not fault the staff I met on my time in hospital for the birth of my 1st child. The building was clean and the staff were friendly. They were calm and professional when extra help was required during my delivery and spoke to me about what was happening. After the birth they were just as caring and helpful, encouraging me to call them if I was unsure of anything no matter how small. All this on my delivery day where each ward was full and staff were being called for all over. Special thanks to my two midwives, who both made me feel relaxed and reassured about everything, especially as I delivered very shortly after arriving at hospital that night. I have already praised the services of this department to lots of people. Hopefully the positive story of my labour, delivery and pre/post natal care will help reassure those due to give birth at Grimsby.

Response from Diana, Princess Of Wales Hospital

Hi Claire, thanks so much for these lovely comments, and congratulations on the birth of your first child! It's great to hear you felt well looked after by the maternity team at DPoW and they'll be really pleased to hear your feedback, too. Please could I ask you to consider nominating your two midwives for our staff awards? We have a special 'patient's choice' category where our patients are able to nominate staff who they think went the extra mile - you can find out more here: http://www.nlg.nhs.uk/about/awards/ Best wishes, Sarah Mainprize
