"A disaster from start to finish"

About: Royal Berkshire Hospital

I knew the NHS was bad, but RBH have left me feeling traumatised from their care. The maternity care was under staffed, disrespectful and hostile. Having a baby there has left us with a bad taste in our mouths and a total discuss for RBH. We won't be returning for anything.
