If your having a baby don't come here . I'm dreading giving birth I'm scared for my baby that she won't get care she needs . I've been in 2 weeks and made 3 complaints . No one will treat me , I get ignored and spend hours - day to see a doctor . They don't involve you in any treatment , don't be surprised if your meds are changed or more likely just stopped without you knowing until you ask for them and are told no . There are some lovely staff but they are over shadowed by the rude ones that won't listen and judge you without even talking or meeting you . I'm sat in side room listening to a midwife slag me off and take the mick out of me over the phone ! as well as I've been told I can't look after my baby , I'm a druggy for wanting pain relief because they won't treat me at 37 weeks pregnant with a slipped disc ! They just want me to lay quietly in a bed in too much pain to even move let alone get up to pee . Your inconsiderate if you ask to speak to one of the only 2 doctors on duty because they are needed else where . Hmm maybe should have spent some of the 150 million on staff for your hospital . I've got doctors refusing to see me because I'm pregnant and maternity refusing to treat me because I need to see someone else or guess what I'm pregnant ! Yet nobody will talk to me or put a plan in place . I just have to lay here in agony worrying about my baby , being ignored and mocked . Best one is when you just get told to talk to night/day staff after they have ignored you and you confront them . Obviously just can't be bothered to deal with me anymore. Funny thing is I sore my consultant this morning but couldn't bring up these problems because I didn't know they existed until after he had left because not my business to know details of my treatment apparently . And yes I've spoken to head midwife and complaint person as well as them trying to set mental health on me which backfired when they agreed I had every right to be angry . If I ever need to go to hospital again hopefully I have enough time to go somewhere else than here !
