"Wish I'd picked a different hospital!"

About: Royal Bolton Hospital / Maternity care

Can't wait for my pregnancy to be over just so that I don't have to come back. I've had a pretty smooth pregnancy up until the last few weeks where I've been back and forth between departments with problems which still I feel none the wiser over. Departments don't talk to each other. Doctors tell you one thing and midwives tell you another - constantly receiving conflicting messages I am now left to keep any concerns I have to myself as I'm made to feel like an idiot every time I attend. Why they tell you things that would cause you to be concerned to then not care a day later is beyond me! Just being caused unnecessary stress!

Response from Royal Bolton Hospital

We are very sorry that you're care hasn't been as you would have expected and that you have received conflicting care plans and information.

Please could I ask that you contact a maternity matron via 01294 390637 to discuss your concerns and clarify your plan of care.
