I received amazing care here throughout my high risk pregnancy. I had previous miscarriages & went through IVF to fall pregnant again. I suffered with severe anxiety as I was terrified of losing another baby. I met my midwife, Debbie Feenhan at 16 weeks pregnant & she was fantastic! Very easy to be open & honest with about how I felt. I was under Miss Waller's care & felt happy every time I had seen her after my growth scans. Again, she was approachable & I felt comfortable asking her questions. I have a blood vessel disorder which my consultant at a London Hospital wrote to Miss Waller about & she checked the recommendations made in the letter & ensured the appropriate tests etc were carried out during the pregnancy. It was decided I should deliver by a planned c-section & Miss Waller explained the complications which could arise due to my previous abdominal surgeries. Knowing this in advance helped as I was well informed on the day of my surgery. Harriet Nicholls was my anaesthetist & listened to my worries & fears on the day of my c-section. Again I felt it was ok to make the decisions I wanted to without being judged, she was very supportive. Once my son was safely delivered & recovery was the only time I felt I wasn't listened to. My son was crying & when I was asked if he might be hungry I was bluntly told no. If he had been breastfed then he would have already been put to the breast. My birthing partner went & got a bottle which my son fed from instantly. I think that particular midwife should respect that not all women want to breastfeed! I was otherwise over the moon with my care throughout my pregnancy & after the birth.
Breast clinic is world class and how all nhs services should be.
I was in first 4/4/19 at the breast clinic and day care theatre everything went smoothly and the aftercare in ward after theatre by Jason Paul and team was brilliant. I had to return for Lymph node biopsy 17/4/19 this time I had afternoon surgery and it was about 5.30 before op. The nurses and staff in waiting area were excellent. Also I don’t know any names but in recovery area I was given again wonderful treatment also on the ground floor ward prior to going home. I am pleased to write this review as my husband had cancer and was in ward 10 October/November 2017 and his treatment or lack of it was disgusting I made many reports to PALS. Joan Brown
