"Please avoid at all cost for maternity services"

About: Princess Royal University Hospital / Maternity

This is the worst hospital I have ever seen in my life. The service here is appalling. I am not sure how any why is this hospital maternity ward still open to public and running.

My concerns - my wife recently gave birth here at this hospital. What was supposed to be a normal delivery right from the beginning ended up with our baby suffering a stroke! (We don't know yet what is the extent of damage caused as it is hard to determine for weeks old baby - Neurologist has confirmed). The doctors are indecisive and do not follow advice of Consultants.

Secondly, they have messed up pathology reports for blood tests and our baby will need to go through them again!

The staff is not great/co-operative either (excepting a few). They seem to be worked up - either because of shortage of staff or God knows what.

So sorry to hear about your experience. If you have not already contacted our maternity service, could I urge you to do so as I know that they will wish to discuss your experience further.
