"The attitude and very caring nature ..."

About: Royal Derby Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

The attitude and very caring nature of all the staff on maternity ward. I lost my husband 10 wks before our baby arrved, and I can honestly say that all of the staff could not do enough for me. I would most definitely recommed any woman to the Royal Derby Hospital

What could be improved

maybe to be a little more strick and vigilant in regards to the set visiting times. The lady next to me had ALL of her relatives to visit. As a result of this they were spilling over to my side of the bed and banging into my babys' cot. They blatently flouted the rules. I was very kindly moved to a side room, but I would have liked to have seen them leave at the end of visiting and to repect the rules as the other visitors did.
