I WRITE with regards to the experience my wife and I have recently had at Brontë Tower, the maternity department at Dewsbury and District Hospital.
We had a pregnancy with complications, which meant my wife had to be in the hospital for two weeks before our daughter’s arrival, and stayed in a further three nights after this.
We unexpectedly stepped into triage on a Monday morning, and 18 days later walked away with our baby. From beginning to end the level of care, concern and professionalism we received was exceptional, whilst often under time and patient pressure.
The hospital was spotlessly clean, the staff confident and assured, the care administered in a timely and consistent manner and done with a genuine friendliness by a team that was passionate and dedicated to its work. All these things made our experience, which could have been tremendously stressful, into one which was comfortable and straight forward.
I have gone from having absolutely no contact with the NHS for years, to visiting the hospital two-to-three times a day and experiencing a major operation first hand. I have nothing but praise and admiration for every single member of staff we had contact with.
