"Rude ward staff"

About: Royal Cornwall Hospital (Treliske)

Had a baby here in July and the midwives up on delivery were fantastic I cannot fault them, there a credit to the hospital, it was when transferred to the ward I felt so upset by the rude midwives who couldn't be bothered to help me, every time I buzzed they blew and whispered something under their breath, I couldn't wait to leave I'd rather have slept in jail than here for the night! Then in the morning I got told to get up and fetch your own breakfast now your not bed bound... I could barely walk!! Such a shame if it wasn't for the matron on the maternity ward I'd have probably said more positive words
