"amazing care from amazing people"

About: Leighton Hospital

What I liked

i have given birth to all 5 of my babies at leighton hospitals maternity unit in may 2001, may 2004, sept 2006, may 2008 and march 2012. 4 of them being normal births and 1 being an emergency c section under GA, the midwives and doctors there are amazing as are the health care assistants. i couldnt of wished for better people to look after myself an my babies. aftercare when i got home was fantastic to. the only thing i was a bit annoyed at was in march 2012 i was sent to warrington hospital when i thought i was in labour because leightons labour ward was closed, i am now however not annoyed as i no leighton had to do it. i did recieve a letter of apology from the maternity services which i thought was nice. luckily i didnt give birth at warrington hospital as my contractions slowed down so after an overnight stay they allowed me to go home. had it of not been for the fantastic care of the midwifes and doctors i would of lost my 4th child, so for that i carnt thank them enough. they are amazing.

Response from Leighton Hospital

Thank you for taking the time to add your comments to this section of the NHS Choices website. We have passed your comments to the team in the maternity unit who were very pleased to receive your positive feedback. Thank you for your understanding when we needed to divert your care. We strive to keep the unit open at all times, but on a small number of occasions the decision to divert is needed in the best interests of the mother and baby, and I'm pleased to hear that our communication to you was helpful to explain this. Thank you.

Pam Cornwall, Head of Midwifery
