"Everything We Hoped For !"

About: Derriford Hospital

What I liked

I wish to send special Thank you's to the Maternity Department and in Particular one midwife who ensured the safe delivery of my first Baby..., my gorgeous little boy,

Her professionalism, care and support were second to none, not only looking after myself but making sure my partner and his mum were both well looked after too,

I was the at the center of my care and labour. The midwife took time to explain everything, letting me make my own decisions and choices.

She is a true credit to the hospital, maternity department and her profession and represents every reason why the NHS is brilliant! :) :)
