"midwives/support staff on the ..."

About: Leeds General Infirmary

(as the patient),

What I liked

midwives/support staff on the delivery suite / assessment unit

privacy of the home from home delivery suites

waterbirth experience

What could be improved

midwife being unsure of how to warer birth- didnt mind that but could have kept it to herself / concealed her inexperience more! (was all fine though!)

attitude of midwives on post-natal ward

visiting hours for close family on post natal ward

privacy on post-natal ward

cleanliness on post natal

Anything else?

overall would recommend a birth at the LGI - the midwives before and during the birth were lovely...the post-natal ward wasn't as nice but they were busier too

Response from Involvement Facilitator, NHS Leeds

Thank you for taking the time to share (on NHS Choices website) your recent experience of midwifery care at Leeds General Infirmary. I was pleased to hear you liked the privacy on the delivery suite and your waterbirth experience. However, I was sorry to learn that you felt the attitude of midwives, cleanliness and privacy on the post-natal ward could be improved.

We shall pass your comments on to the Patient Relations Manager at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.
