"some of the staff were friendly ..."

About: Peterborough Maternity Unit

(as the patient),

What I liked

some of the staff were friendly and helpful and listened to me.

What could be improved


i had major problems throughout pregnancy, i was in/out of the hospital and most of the time made to feel that i wasting peoples time. the staff "knew best" and wouldnt listen about concerns i had with baby - yes they deal with loads of babies daily BUT i am the 1 that knew my baby best

Anything else?

things need to improve in listening to patients and bedside manners. this doesnt apply to all staff.
