About: Barnsley Hospital

Communication is terrible During my time of being pregnant I have had nothing but problems and the nhs haven't helped. I have had to chase up on more than one occasion my scan appointments and its not good when the scans are for the safety of my unborn child. I had to change my midwife after going through the doctors who told me I cant change my midwife even though I had a very good reason to then I had to contact the hospital and contact the head of midwives who was very pleasant and dealt with the situation. Still communication is terrible and I hope that the rest of my pregnancy goes better. If i ever get pregnant again I will looking at going to a different hospital.
