"Huge thank you"

About: Royal Derby Hospital

A huge thank you to all the staff at the maternity hospital & neonatal. My daughter was visiting Derbyshire at the weekend with a hen party, when at 32 wks pregnant her waters broke. Chaos at the hen due, but the paramedics were amazing with my daughter Jen. Emergency c section and baby Ellen was born weighing 4lb 3oz . All the theatre staff , ward 314 staff were brilliant. Down in the neonatal Ellen had the very best of care. We cannot thank you all enough, our NHS is wonderful, what would we do without it. My daughter & baby have transferred to a hospital nearer home now. But i wanted to thank your wonderful hospital for caring so well for them all, daddy included
