About: The Whittington Hospital

What I liked

I can't praise the staff at the Whittington enough for my care through my pregnancy and birth. After a traumatic time in a hospital in Canada with poor care post delivery, I was worried about what would happen after a 3rd c section in a British hospital. It was because of the reassurance and expertise of the staff in the Labour Ward and the caring attitude of the anaesthetist and surgeon amongst others that made the surgery bearable and I was able to enjoy the birth of my daughter. The aftercare in Celliers Ward was also very good and who cares if the ward itself is a little dated, it's the people that count and they were wonderful. Thank you so much to the staff in those wards.
