"A superb maternity unit"

About: Friarage Hospital Site

The care I received during labour and for two days post natal was exemplary; the staff went out of their way to accommodate my wishes, to involve me in decisions and to care for my husband and baby when I needed surgery. I cannot praise them highly enough. The care and guidance on the postnatal ward was also superb and I left hospital confident in feeding and caring for my baby.

I appreciate you taking the time to provide feedback and I shall ensure your kind words are forwarded to the staff involved. It may interest you to know the trust runs a ‘Thank You Award’ scheme where NHS colleagues, patients and relatives can nominate staff in recognition of their work.
