In these incredibly unprecedented and uncertain times I wanted to say a huge thank you to all the staff at the NMH. I am due my second child in the next few weeks. It has been an extremely anxious time and every time I enter the hospital for clinic appointments I am always looked after so well and reassured in a kind but realistic manner. I can see over the last month all the measures that the hospital has put in place for this pandemic and I feel so reassured that you are doing all you can do to protect not only your patients but the staff too. From the person meeting people at the door, the sinks in the corridor as you go in, spacing out appointments in clinic to not overcrowding the waiting room your efforts are much appreciated. While it's still an anxious and uncertain time to prepare to give birth I feel assured you are taking it seriously and that is such peace of mind for me. So again a huge thank you to you all! I hope all the staff and their families stay safe and well. You are all doing an amazing job. I look forward to welcoming our son into the world in your hospital in the coming weeks.
The Staff from the time we entered the hospital on the Sunday with reduced movements until our little boy was born on the Thursday were amazing. The nurses and doctors in the A&E really reassured us our little boy was doing well at such a worrying time. The care we received was beyond brilliant. Thank you to all the staff and students on Unit 3 for their kindness and care they showed us over what was a long 3 days. And to Gill for keeping me calm and for the kind chats and reassurance when I was just exhausted. And even gave her time to come say hello to our little boy the next morning after her shift finished. A huge thanks to Fiona, Orla and Sheeba for all the help bringing our little boy into the world. Fiona is amazing at her job and we trusted her 100% on the decisions she made, she reassured me the whole time. We will be forever grateful to all the staff at NMH.
I attended the outpatient’s clinic for a regular check-up and I must say with everything going on at the moment with COVID 19 I was quite nervous going in as I haven’t been out much both with being pregnant and having someone with a low immune system in my household. That all changed from the minute I walked in the door of the hospital and I just want to express my gratitude for all the staff and everything they are doing during these tough times. The procedures the department had in place to enforce social distancing were amazing and every staff member in there from the admin to the midwifes to the cleaners were noting but helpful and more. They really kept me at ease. The hospital is doing an amazing job and both myself and my partner couldn’t be happier with where we chose to have our first baby. Being on the frontline at times like these isn’t an easy task and I just wanted the whole team at Holles street to know it’s greatly appreciated by myself and I’m sure many others. Times like these make it easy to focus on the negative but my visit yesterday really made me see the positive which is we have amazing people working tireless in this country like the staff at Holles street and I don’t want anyone to think it goes unnoticed. So from the bottom of my heart thank you. I hope this all passes soon and your lives are a made little bit easier, you really are the heros..
