What I liked
I had my baby at Musgrove Park. I stayed at Bracken ward, and then Willow ward.
The staff really made an exceptional effort to make sure my baby and I were well cared for.
During delivery, I was well informed and although things didnt go to plan, and ended with an emergency cesarean, I was entirely happy with procedures carried out. Staff were incredible in their approach to paitent care, and my husband was also kept well informed.
I was well supported, particularly with breast feeding, and felt totally at home. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was brilliant, and I could have happily stayed longer.
What could be improved
The condition of the ward (peeling paint) let it down, but if this came at the cost of patient care, then it would be an easy choice to make.
