"Exceptional care at Grantham midwifery department"

About: Grantham & District Hospital / Maternity care

(as the patient),

The care within the Grantham midwifery department is second to none. I genuinely feel like they actually care for me and I am not just a number. The team work so well together and independently and there is nothing they won't do to ensure that I feel happy and assured that everything is being done that can be done. Not all the money in the world would make me want to have care by anyone else. Paula and the midwives at Grantham are beyond exceptional.
