"Amazing Place"

No faults can be given at all for anything in this hospital. i stayed in the mother and baby unit in 2011 for 13weeks. it was superb, the staff were extremely friendly and helped any way they could. The food wasnt nice but certainly improved after i was there a few weeks. If you were bored or needed time out all you had to do was say and you could go to facilities like the gym or go down to the shops with the nurses. I loved been in morpeth mother and baby unit and cannot thank all the staff enough for their support. I came out stronger, more confident and independant. the bond i now have between myself and my daughter is stronger than ever and im extremelly glad i took the help offered amd went in there. the atmosphere waa great they kept your mind busy by talkig to you, havig a giggle, preparing and cooking meals and taking you places. I learned so much in that 13weeks that i still remember and use in everyday life now. once again thank you to all the staff

Response from St Georges Hospital Site (Morpeth)

As the manager of the mother and baby unit in Morpeth I am delighted to view such positive comments not only about the team but with regard to the ward environment. We are very fortunate to be sited within Morpeth and walks to the town centre for shopping or a coffee help to re-establish mothers back into those kinds of environments. Recovering from a mental illness and regaining confidence in oneself to be a mother is helped by medical, psychological, emotional and practical support. I hope that the environment, the activities the enthusiasm, care and compassion of the staff enables mothers and their relatives to return home and be a family again. I have every confidence in the team and value these comments greatly.
