"5 visits"

About: Chase Farm Hospital

Anything else?

I have been in chase farm on 5 occasions. 1 natural birth, 2 csecs, a dislocated knee and then knee realignment surgery. The birth of my first child in 2008 was an awful one a I found the midwives, rude and disrespectful to me. I was on my own through the birth as my family member didn't make it in time but due to staff I then developed a fear of having a natural birth again. This is why I had 2 cesareans after in 2010 & 2013. My other stays in hospital have been great tho and the staff have been nothing but helpful. I would definitely choose to go there again as in time I learnt my first experience was bad due to the two nasty rude midwives I was unluckily enough to get stuck with. I was extremely pleased with the care I was given with my knee realignment surgery in 2011 and found the process very quick and the staff were great.

Response from Chase Farm Hospital

The Trust is pleased that you had a positive experience whilst using our surgical and maternity services and this has been logged onto our local governance system. Unfortunately it would be difficult to go back to 2008 to investigate the comments regarding staff then. Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback
