"Excellent from start to finish"

About: Countess Of Chester Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

Considering the nhs is under such a massive strain, the service my wife received during the birth of our little boy was outstanding. The NHS is something we've all grown up with and usually take for granted. However, I feel I need to write this review as during this visit-every single nurse genuinely seemed to care and make time for my wife. They gave answers before we asked & told us to think of any questions we had as they would pop back later to make sure we weren't in the dark on any of the procedures that were being carried out.

My wife's labour went well, but there were complications after that required surgery & a 3 day stay over. Her and baby were continually monitored and I felt comfortable leaving them in the trust of the nurses and doctors, something I've not always been so confident on.

If I had received this service from private health care, I would have been ecstatic. To receive it from the NHS surpassed all expectations.

These guys really don't get paid enough for what they do.

Thanks very much from a very happy & proud daddy.
