I am writing on behalf of my daughter who had her first baby in this hospital in July Her experience was not a good one and has left her feeling very concerned about any future care she may be required to have in this hospital. She required a Caesarian section following induced labour and foetal distress. Although this is not the desired outcome to her pregnancy she was very accepting that this was required for her safety and that of her baby. However the care she received afterwards was far from optimal! General ward upkeep and hygiene was poor, food was appalling and we were required to take food in to supplement. Some staff were very helpful but generally there seemed to be a lack of care and information was sparse Following a post operative infection my daughters main concern was that she may be readmitted !
