"Mulberry Ward "

About: Darent Valley Hospital / Gynaecology

(as the patient),

I would like to thank the staff on duty on Saturday the 22nd January. After my non existent antenatal care at DV i was expecting an awful time. I was admitted to the ward after a missed miscarriage.

The staff especially the sister (Shuki i think her name was) and the nurse that was doing her training. They were lovely nothing was too much trouble, they were willing to do anything without it seeming like a chore. They made one of the worst days of my life more bearable.

There was one problem i phoned for a bed at 9am and i was told the Dr's were on rounds (why tell us to phone at 9) phoned at 9. 30, still on rounds. Got a phone call at 9.45 to say come in at 11. We arrived and had to wait 1 1/2 hours in the waiting room for a bed, no one should have to go through that at such an awful time.
