"I had my second baby in October ..."

About: Leighton Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I had my second baby in October 2008 at Leighton and I have to say the staff were excellent I was treated with respect and given timely and appropriate care by the midwifes, after having my baby a lovely nurse ran me a bath before we were transferred upstairs for some rest.

What could be improved

I had a wait after delivery for a doctor to examine and stitch me and the they had a debate (him and the midwife) at the end of my bed as to who's job it was ! Although it was very busy at this time and they were dealing with a lot of women in labour.

Anything else?

Very impressed this hospital went against all the negative things I had heard and excelled itself.
