What I liked
Wonderful helpful staff, clean rooms, good access to the ward,
I visited the hospital (or was actually rushed to ) over the period of 4 days and I had a chance to deal with the staff members working on all the different shifts. Every single one of them- doctors and nurses were fantastic, they treated me with dignity and made sure I was as comfortable as I could be despite of horrible circumstances - going through a miscarriage.
After my missed miscarriage was confirmed through an emergency scan (once again arranged despite the technician being very busy) I was given 3 options which were explained to me in depth discussing both advantages and the risks.
When I was rushed to hospital due to horrible pain over 4 hours before my appointment I was treated immediately and given different types of pain relief. The nurses kept checking on me regularly making sure I had everything I needed. My husband was present with me most of the time and when he had to leave for a few hours the nurses made sure I was ok.
Before going to this hospital I read some negative comments and was slightly worried - well there was no need.
The staff made my experience much less painful which I am extremely grateful for.
Hopefully my next pregnancy will go smoothly and my baby will be delivered there safely
