"Wonderful staff and care"

About: St Mary's Hospital (Manchester)

What I liked

Outstanding care from all staff. I have had several appointments during my pregnancy with a couple more scheduled before my baby is due. I have also attended triage twice. Every midwife, doctor, nurse or other member of staff I have had contact with has been friendly & efficient and I have been made to feel like my care is important to them. I highly recommend this hospital to other patients.

I wish people complaining about late appointments and other petty things would research the actual cost of the treatments NHS provide. The amount of tax most of us pay does not cover the care we receive and many people don't work but get free care. Even private hospitals run late if emergencies crop up. Maybe if the NHS gave out itemised bills with the actual cost patients would appreciate the wonderful service NHS give us.

What could be improved

Footstools for pregnant women while waiting for appointments!
