"clean room on maternity labour ..."

About: Salisbury District Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

clean room on maternity labour ward. Lovely health care assistants.

What could be improved

Staff not moaning about caring for you during their shift in handover that i could hear through the door!!! And that was the Senior sister!!! found this very upsetting

Anything else?

being able to have an early pregnancy scan at weekends and not having to wait to see if a baby has been lost or suffering from an eptopic for 48 hrs untill monday am at 9am . There should be an on call rota for emergencys.
