"I was cared for brilliantly"

About: Aberdeen Maternity Hospital

(as the patient),

My stay in Aberdeen Maternity Hospital was great. I was in for a week and was cared for brilliantly from the very start right to the finish.

My baby who was born prematurely spent a couple of days in the neonatal ward prior to birth and the care she received was second to none, really can't thank the staff enough for what they did for her. Any questions or if I needed reassurance on anything they were right there. There was always a nurse or an assistant on hand if I was upset or needed help with anything.

Despite all the bad press and opinions of Aberdeen Maternity Hospital, all the facilities were clean and up to standard. I will be choosing Aberdeen Maternity Hospital again and again to hopefully give birth to my children.

Many, many thanks for posting your feedback on Patient Opinion. Excellent care, delivered in a compassionate and person-centred manner in a clean and safe environment is what your describe and what we strive to achieve for every patient, every day. We do not always get it right but I am really glad that, in your case, we did.

Staff are always very, very grateful for their care and professionalism to be acknowledged in this public way, so thank you again and all my very best wishes to you and your baby.

Kind regards,
