"Just superb"

About: Salisbury District Hospital

I don't often visit hospitals but had to go to the early pregnancy unit in Odstock in February after being diagnosed with an ectopic pregnancy during a holiday to Spain. They were compassionate, caring, punctual and informed me of what was going on every step if the way. They rang me weekly for around 4 weeks and saw me regularly to keep an eye on me and to ensure the ectopic was expectantly managed and resolved naturally. They included me in treatment options and understood that I did not want any toxic injections , but wanted natural resolution. The service I had was worlds better than the service I had in Spain where I was originally diagnosed. I really cannot thank all the staff enough for helping me through a difficult time in my life, and for treating me with such compassion and respect. I would highly recommend this hospital, and particularly the staff at the early pregnancy unit, top notch.
