Response from Queen Elizabeth I I Hospital

We are very sorry to hear that your experience on our maternity ward at the QEII was an unhappy one.

Generally the feedback we receive from mothers and families who have used the unit is overwhelmingly positive so it is concerning when we hear of cases such as yours.

Whenever we do receive formal complaints we always investigate immediately and share the findings with the complainant as soon as we can.

We would be happy to arrange for you to meet with your consultant and the head of midwifery so you can talk them through your experience and help us to make our service better.

If this is something you would like to do then please contact the public affairs team on 01438 781522 or 781736.
