"Outstanding surgery and good/high standards of..."

About: Leicester General Hospital

Anything else?

The surgery that I received for my Elective Caesarean section was of an exceptionally high standard. The midwives, anaesthetists and surgeons who delivered my baby were wonderful. My aftercare the ward was also very good. The staff obviously work in a stressful environment, but remained very attentive and helpful. The senior midwife who eventually discharged me was both professional and supportive, and whilst I was feeling very emotional and frightened. She consciously took the time to sensitively provide reassurance, as did some other staff, and whilst dealing with some major emergencies at the same time. - My little daughter is perfect! Thank you for everything (and my apologies again for being such an emotional nuisance!!) 
