"Nursing staff were great, very ..."

About: University Hospital Of North Tees

(as a relative),

What I liked

Nursing staff were great, very helpful, compassionate and friendly.

What could be improved

Doctors were arrogant, and did not communicate anything regarding my babies illness until I backed them into a corner. Two weeks after he was born there he was on deaths door with MRSA and Strep B. Although they were aware of what he was suffering from from day 2, it took me until day 6 to force the information out of them. No decisions have been consistant regarding his care, they have ignored requests for copies of my sons records and test results.

Anything else?

MRSA is a risk at this hospital, one they are ill prepared to support in aftercare.
