Sin­cere thank you to the Royal Glam­or­gan

Western Mail - - VIEWS OF WALES -

MY hus­band and I re­cently had the amazing ex­pe­ri­ence of wel­com­ing our baby girl, Eloise, into the world. Eloise was born at the out­stand­ing Royal Glam­or­gan Hos­pi­tal. On be­half of all three of us I wanted to con­vey our sin­cer­est thank you to the won­der­fully car­ing and hard­work­ing team of mid­wives, doc­tors, anaes­thetists, con­sul­tants and pae­di­a­tri­cians, as well as health­care sup­port staff who brought our lit­tle girl safely into the world. We could not have asked for bet­ter care and would like to praise the ef­forts of both the mid­wife-led and con­sul­tant-led ser­vices at the hos­pi­tal – these staff re­ally are a credit to the NHS in Wales.

As I write this, I un­der­stand that there are plans by Cwm Taf UHB to re­lo­cate the ma­ter­nity ser­vices away from RGH. I can­not em­pha­sise enough how strongly I feel that this would be a real loss to the area, es­pe­cially as the ser­vices are al­ready heav­ily used. This ser­vice is ex­em­plary and I feel that the strong, col­lab­o­ra­tive work­ing that I saw be­tween the var­i­ous teams of staff, not to men­tion the con­ve­nience of hav­ing in­te­grated ser­vices all on one site, should re­main. I can only hope that this de­ci­sion will be re­viewed so that other women and their ba­bies can ben­e­fit from the fan­tas­tic lev­els of care re­ceived by my­self and fam­ily.

Thank you once again to all those in­volved in our care – we feel very grate­ful and blessed.

Katharine and Jonathan Levy
