"Thank you for my miscarriage care at Princess Royal Hospital"

About: Princess Royal University Hospital / Gynaecology

(as the patient),

Sadly I had to have a medically assisted miscarraige on the two weeks ago. During a routine check, it was discovered that my baby's heart had stopped beating.

I just want to thank the nurse at the Early Pregnancy Detection Unit (Teresa), the surgical nurse that looked after me that day, the night duty midwife (Anna) and the midwife that discharged me the next day.

I couldn't believe the incredible care I received - they all treated me with care and compassion that helped ease the pain of what was happening that day. I was really impressed with the treatment I received, the level of service, the quality of the room I was in and the overall cleanliness of the hospital.
