I cannot agree/disagree with all positive/negative comments. Overall i am giving 5 star for my own personal experiences, my 4 kids were all born here, 3 boys, 1 girl. & another baby on the way will be... more born here! Sophie my eldest had Jaundice where she was put under basically a baby sunbed & got colour into her, she is 13 years old on 31st Aug 2017. Lois 11 was born with the cord around her neck & they saved her even though she was a bluey purple colour. Danielle 4 now was born no problems if i can recall, Oliver now 2 i think had complications in birth like took too much water in i think. I thought he was dead again a purple colour, but he was fine also. Great team that worked quickly/competently & with minimum fuss. No problems there! Obviously A&E is overcrowded, long waiting times etc. But the maternity/labour ward fantastic.
