"Friendly staff, a good visit overall."

About: Royal United Hospital

What I liked

Excellent, friendly midwives who made my wifes stay and labour a lot easier than on previous occasions. Very patient and understanding doctors.

What could be improved

Bins in patient areas should be emptied more often, on several occasions they were overflowing with used sanitary products. I think there could also be slightly better options for visiting by people other than partners and patients own children, as we live outside of Bath it was very difficult for other relatives to visit during the 1 hour time slot provided.

Response from Royal United Hospital

Thank you for your suggestion regading visiting times. We do offer 2 visiting sessions each day - one and a half hours in the afternoon and an an hour each evening. However if anyone wishing to visit a patient has difficulty in visiting at these times, we would always advise you to contact the Ward as it may be possible, in certain circumstances, to make an alternative arrangement.
