"Delivery suite rusher ward"

About: East Surrey Hospital

My wife gave birth here on Tuesday and I must say what a pleasure it was to deal with staff that want to be there and will take time to listen to your fears and put your mind at ease! We had a terrible experience and a different hospital and was nervous of doing it over a again, our midwife and her student were a absolute pleasure to have looking after us and would like to personally thank them and say what a fantastic job they did and the after care from them was second to none. All the staff were extremely friendly and a mention to the tea/lunch lady who seemed to go out of her way to make sure we had tea and coffee etc lovely lady. All in all a wonderful team and a fantastic hospital
