What I liked

i was on the maternity ward .i like the care that i was given by midwifes and doctors and especially the midwife and doctors that deliver my son there fast response deliverd him saflely and iam very gratfull to them for that .

What could be improved

there was things that i think could be improved me and my baby both had 2 stay in due to him having to have antiobotics cause i didnt get them in labour and i was told so many diffrent thing by doctors .and at the time the wards were shut to visits which i found quite hard as my family didnt get 2 see the baby till he was 4 days old .

Anything else?

i think both midwifes and doctors do a great job just that they are very run off there feet .

Please rest assured we only ever close wards to protect our patients from infections that can sometimes be found out in the community during the winter months. May we take this opportunity to thank you again for your feedback and wish you all the best with your new arrival.
