"the delivery suite"

About: Leeds General Infirmary

Anything else?

my wife was recently induced but we had to wait 4 days for a midwife to break her waters! They could break them but didn't have enough staff to deliver our baby!she only managed to get 8 hours sleep while waiting and was very tired when it came to the birth! we would have gone home but we were told we would go to the back of the cue if we did! i'm totally shocked and disgusted at the lack of staff ! the poor staff were all fatigued and are pushed to breaking point! the staff were all excellent and deserve recognition of this but there wasn't enough of them! this has caused me,my wife and children a lot of anxiety and distress! you ruined our magical day and this will be in our memory forever! i would actually pursue legal action but this wouldn't help the nhs.
