What could be improved


Anything else?

I have had a few experiences at leighton, sadly in nov 2006 my husband and i lost our first little boy when he was 3 hours old. The staff were exceptional and the care and devotion they showed to do everything they possibly could for our son was remarkable. I will always be grateful to them for the care they also showed to me and how sensitive they treated me in the days after. I also recieved a card from the neonatal unit a year after which i thought was lovely that they had remembered us.

Since then we have been lucky enough to have had a little boy and also a set of boy and girl twins. During my pregnancies, they treated me very well, the communication between staff was excellent to pass on my previous history and our situation was very well managed. Through alot of complications, they have enabled us to have a wonderful family.

Recently this week i had to visit the A & E department with my son. There was no waiting and the doctor was fantastic.

In conclusion, all my experiences at leighton have been met by staff who seem very caring and who do all that they physically can to help.
