About: Pembury Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I was in Pembury hospital for the birth of my son at the end of April. I had a complicated labour and was quite poorly afterwards but thanks to ALL the midwives and health workers, George was given the best start to life possible. The delivery suite team were fantastic. They looked after me throughout and made me feel at ease. All the staff on Victoria ward should be commended for their FANTASTIC care. The healthcare workers are all so lovely and run round patients like headless chickens. They dont get paid anywhere near the amount they should for the work they do. The midwives were all so brilliant - I cant thank them enough. On the day we were discharged, I felt v emotional and tearful to say goodbye. A huge thank you.

What could be improved

....obviously the food!! And perhaps it could be slightly cleaner but that's nothing to do with the midwives or health care workers

Anything else?

I would really appreciate it if a copy of my comments could go to the delivery suite and Victoria Ward. I am not commending management by posting my views. I just think people should know how superb the staff are and the staff should know how much they are all appreciared by new mums and dads! Thank you so much!
