NEW mum Emma Sanders praised the ‘exemplary’ care shown to her by staff nurse Jayne Harris, pictured left, and others at Leighton Hospital’s new state-of-the-art maternity ward.

The facility has just received the highest possible rating in a national clinical assessment.

Emma spent time in the maternity unit during her pregnancy with son Harry, pictured, who is receiving treatment on the neonatal intensive care unit.

She said: “I honestly don’t feel that Harry would be with us now if it wasn’t for the care that we both received.

He has had the very best treatment and is in the safest of hands. I am so grateful for all the excellent care from everyone we have come into contact with.”
