What I liked
I have been a patient at this hospital 3 times once around 5 years ago when i was extremely ill with a rare medical condition (which i must say the hospital staff tested me for right away), which was diagnosed streat away on being admitted, all staff in both A&E and on the ward were great, couldn't fault them at all, and twice to have children. My first child was born 2007 and the midwife i had was great very calm, very helpful and made labour very easy and must say not as bad as i was expecting at all, and with my second child i had a c-section which i really was dreading, the nursing staff were great then, they reasurred me and made me feel much better about things, and the midwife even popped her head into my room a day latter to say congrats and see how i was. On every occasion the care i received was great and i couldn't fault it one bit. Would def recommend this hosiptal.
What could be improved
Clinics need to run on time! This is the only fault i have with the hospital is that every appointment i have attended with the endocronology team is at least an hour behind! (i wouldnt mind but on most occasions i have attended i have been the first appointment of the afternoon!) If appointments aren't going to be kept to why bother giving them??
