"A&E, maternity and kingfisher"

About: Dorset County Hospital

I've been a few times; when my daughter was born, the midwives were excellent, constantly monitoring, encouraging and comforting and when a quick decision needed to be made regarding an emergency c-section the doctors were right on it. For the next few days the midwives were good but each offered differing, sometimes conflicting advice but then each baby is also different. Fast forward two years and we were back when said daughter had a seizure, we were straight into A&E and again the doctors were very good. We got taken to kingfisher ward and were looked after very well, given plenty of information and advice.

Response from Dorset County Hospital

Thank you for posting such lovely comments on your previous experience of our midwifery service and recently how well the Emergency Department and Kingfisher teams cared for you and your daughter; I will make sure your feedback is shared with the teams. It must have been quite frightening for you to see your daughter having a seizure and I hope she is making a speedy recovery. Kind regards, Alison Tong, Director of Nursing, Dorset County Hospital.
