"Maternity ward - incompetent and arrogant"

About: Kingston Hospital

Caused a traumatic delivery inspite of my repeated requests to review the decisions being made over 3 days. Arrogant doctor says "NHS won't offer C-Sec like peanuts". Incompetent Consultant generalise by talking statistics and didn't listen to our concern that baby is already above average weight 'in our case'.

To mums: take second opinion. Avoid unnecessary traumatic births.

Unless NHS scales down which is bound to happen alternate medical care at differnt affordable levels won't grow in our country and until then we will not have Choices.
