About: Croydon University Hospital

What I liked

There was one nurse who made the stay pleasant, she was the only light in a dismal and horrible environment!

What could be improved

Get the maternity nurses to actually like working with patients - or they should change careers - it was horrible - also, they need training, training and training, my husband new more about my care after a few hours than the nurses or doctors did - who I presume must have had some training before stepping into my room - I still wonder!

Anything else?

I have continously told people that it is the worst maternity ward ever and not to have a baby there!
