About: Southend Hospital

as soon as I went onto the ward to have my labour induced my whole birthing plan was by the staff without speaking to me or notifying me of any changes, there was no consistency in the staff and patient communication. labour went from one extreme to another. we also had 80 pounds stolen from my partners wallet when he left his belongings in the scrub room in theatre.
