About: Queen Elizabeth Hospital (Gateshead)

Was in labor for two/three weeks I rang everyday and they just fobbed me off and then when it was time to get my waters broken I rang and just told me to keep ringing back it just seemed like I was getting fobbed off all the time, I had to get another hospital to ring up and after that I got told to go in so I did and then it took them 2 hours before they came to see me they clearly saw that I was in agony and in a lot of pain and it took another 2 hours before they broke waters but the labor was brilliant and the after care I can't fault it
