"midwives were superb throughout support ..."

About: Royal Sussex County Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

midwives were superb throughout

support staff were friendly and helpful

treatment and advice were top-quality

everyone working on the maternity knew our situation before coming to see us

even the views are wonderful - giving birth to sunrise over the sea and south downs is quite a privilege

even the food was good!

What could be improved

signage in the hospital is not clear

more staff could be employed by the trust/NHS if funding was increased

Anything else?

in a time when the NHS in general and midwives in particular are coming under fire from all sides, the support and service we experienced during pregnancy and labour was second to none. As first time parents we were delighted with the Royal Sussex County Hospital and grateful to all the midwives there and at our local surgery.

Response from Royal Sussex County Hospital

Little Al,

Thank you for your comment it is wonderful to hear you have such high regard for the County’s midwives and your feedback will be passed on to the team. As your comment reflects, our maternity team works extremely hard to deliver high standards of care and they will appreciate your kind support.

Thank you also for your suggestion of improved signage around the hospital site. You may be aware that through our 3Ts programme there are plans in place to modernise the County and this redevelopment of the site will include better signage for our patients. We hope you and your baby are doing well.
