"May 2011 Birth"

About: Colchester General Hospital

Anything else?

Disgusting treatment of my wife during the birth of our son, 40 hours of labour and an emergency C section at the end only because me and the mother in-law demanded that they do one. Planning our 2nd child at present and we are going to Ipswich hospital as this hospital scares my wife and she never wants to attend hear again

I apologise you’ve not had a good patient experience. We try really hard to improve our services based on the comments we receive from our patients, their relatives or carers. We would like the opportunity to discuss your experiences more fully and to apologise in person. If you are willing I would appreciate it if I could ask the matron to contact you. Could you email me, using the reference “Maternity service at RDEE4-Colchester General Hospital at 25/11/2013 13:57:07”, please?
