"Mother & baby unit slow"

About: Hull Royal Infirmary

very slow service, left a 14 pregnant girl waiting 16 hours for a bed in the labour ward and made her come back at 8am the next morning for a bed she came and got a bed and they then moved her back down because they "couldn't burst her waters". She is already 2 weeks over her due date, therefore I am not impressed with the service at all. they are just causing more stress to the mother and her unborn child. Appalling!
