"The care was nothing short of outstanding"

About: Wishaw General Hospital / Maternity care

(as a parent/guardian),

My son was born at 36 weeks and 6 days in Wishaw General Hospital. He suffered from low blood sugars and needed some assistance with his breathing and when he was transferred to the neo natal unit the care he received was nothing short of outstanding.

Every single person who was looking after him showed how much they cared about their job and this was hugely comforting when we had to go away and leave him there on his own for a few days

In the meantime my wife was receiving excellent care in Ward 22 and in particular from a midwife called Anne.
