About: Harrogate District Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I registered to have a baby at Harrogate hospital and found the service and staff efficiency to be exemplary. I wanted to breastfeed after the birth and the staff in the Pannal Ward were so good at keeping me on track (as at one point I was ready to give up in a moment of madness) Thank you for all your help of keeping me going, very professional.

What could be improved

Response from Harrogate District Hospital

Dear Fiona

Many thanks for taking the time to post comments on the Choices website regarding your experience of having a baby at Harrogate District Hospital.

It is very pleasing to hear that you had such a positive experience at the hopsital - we do pride ourselves on our record for encouraging breastfeeding as it is so good for baby and for mum and baby to bond. We hold the UNICEF Baby Friendly accrediation as a result of this work, which is an acoclade we are very proud of.

Best wishes to you and much happiness with your new arrival!

Kind regards

Gillian Neild

Head of Communications
