"Have been to DVH several times ..."

About: Darent Valley Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

Have been to DVH several times over that last couple of years:

Maternity - excellent, the midwives are in the main lovely and all of them do such a good job. Had my second child delivered by the midwives it took 4hrs 1min from them breaking my waters! Well done.

General Surgery - The doctor and their team are brilliant, sympathetic and caring.

Orthopaedics - The surgery I had was done quickly and well, I recovered well and now I'm a happy bunny again.

I can recommend DVH as a place to go when you need treatment.

What could be improved

I think the parking costs in general need to be reviewed, it's a captive audience and you do feel that the costs are extortionate.

Some areas of the main reception hall and loos need a major refurb.

What about putting a loo back into the baby changing room too so that us Mum's and Dad's can get everything done in one room?
