"Excellent midwifes day & night"

About: Royal Bolton Hospital

I was recently in Bolton hospital with my niece as she was ready to give birth on the 12/03/15. My niece wanted a water birth. The room they gave her was fabulous. So big, lightly dimmed, very comfortable & spacious and also done with the lighting to have a lovely calming feel. The midwife who was on the day shift was amazing and an exceptional midwife. The evening midwife with a trainee again were exceptional. Even the next day when another midwife came on, they were exceptional also. I found the whole experience of being there with my niece watching the midwifes perform their roles to be an amazing experience. Everything about the place from the rooms, to the staff was truly an easy 10/10. Bolton hospital would defiantly be the place I would recommend to friends & family if they need to go to the hospital for one reason or another. Well done to everyone involved. It was excellent! I have also wrote a longer letter that I will be forwarding to the ward as well as other heads with in the nhs. The people/midwifes/trainees, really need all the praise in the world. Along with those who make the rooms as clean and tidy and welcoming as they are. One word...Fabulous.
