"Fantastic care at the pregnancy assessment unit"

About: Lincoln County Hospital

I was recently visiting my family for a long weekend over here in lincolnshire. I am 25 weeks pregnant and I'm receiving all my maternity care in manchester, I had not felt any movement for about 36 hours, after a long night of worrying on Saturday my sister rang the triage desk for advice, the midwife on the phone was fantastic and advised I made my way in for assessment, I arrived 25 minutes later and was greeted by a lovely friendly face, just what you need, I was extremely frightened but they made me feel at ease, after being hooked to the Monitor for 5 minutes the midwife then went on to give me as much information as she could about what I could do to get baby moving, and ensured me I hadn't wasted anyone's time in coming to see them. We was assessed within 50 minutes on a Sunday morning, what more could you need, great service
