"Exclent mat department"

About: Royal Bolton Hospital

In the past week me and my husband have seen, mat triarge , delivery, recovery, m2 and m5 and m4 also the high depency unit in delivery. Neonatal intensive care and baby care unit. Due to are son arriving 8 weeks early. And I resived amazing care when I became poorly and my son has resived amazing care though out the staff have all been amazing from the midwife who held my hand and was so Carm and nice while I shouted at the midwife out of fear from the doctor who delivered my son then the next day the same doctor remind on an hour after their shift to make sure I was taken to the right place even tho the doctor should of been going home.

My only big down fall is the chairs in baby unit there is 3 of the big comfy blue chairs that the mums fight between to get one as sitting there for up to 12 hours a day with ur baby after a section on a stupid little chair is killing for the bum and back. And those green ones with the pumps are so low who ever thought they would be good in there never had a section or a poorly baby. Get rid of the horrable chairs and add at lest one comfy chair per cot space!
