well they've just turned me down for a job But I don;t know anything about the maternity services, sorry Hint though - if you don't klnow where it is do a couple of test runs because I found it a night mare to find! Although presumably you'll go for antenatal stuff as well
I had my ds there in 2007. I can't speak highly enough of the maternity unit, the hospital as a whole really. I live between QE and university hospital Durham and will definitely be choosing QE again to have dc2 in just under 9 months time
It's ranked one of the best maternity units in the country.
Well, tell her am v impressed with the care so far - the community midwife's have been fab!
And stealth is right - it can be a pain in the backside to find, esp as the maternity unit is nowhere near the main entrance - you need to go in from the Windy Nook Road side, not the QE Avenue bit. A trial run definitely in order!
Has DS in there in 2006 had a CS, surgical staff, maternity staff excellent. I had my own room, I found it a busy and noisey place to be after having a baby, but I think most hospitals are like this, and it was my first time in a hopsital overnight. (having been in a different one recently for something else)
I am due feb 2012 and live elsewhere now I will be v happy if my new local hospital is as good.
Oh, I was prepared for good and bad, and am very relieved that the feedback has been positive so far
Never had any exp of hospitals before (never had reason to go in since my own birth!) so wanted some opinions. Am mentally preparing myself for naff food, hot wards and noise, but am sure that's the same in all hospitals.
