What I liked
I had my son here by elective section as he was extremely large. The registrar was excellent when answering my questions and consenting me and the consultant obstetrician and anaesthetist were so kind and warm that we had an fantastic experience of something that could have been very cold and clinical. All the midwives and nursing staff in theatre, recovery and on the postnatal ward were superb. The ward also seemed very clean (a change from my previous visit 2 years ago) and was not busy so everyone had lots of time to spend with me when I needed it.
What could be improved
The food is fairly bad! But no worse than other hospitals....
