I am appalled at the lack of professional interest shown by Hillingdon hospital. I gave birth approx. 2.5years and with poor attention and care from the midwives and medical staff, I haemorrhaged and experienced 2nd degree tears. The lack of due diligence shown from staff was extremely poor, as I then had to go through a blood transfusion 24hours after the associated surgery. With my 2nd child expected in September I decided beginning of this year to move hospitals and opted for Northwick park. In the meantime staff at Northwick Park they have requested the medical history from Hillingdon hospital only to experience lack of communication and no historical reports have been provided to date. The information was requested over 6 weeks ago as it is critical to my own health and the birth of my new child in 6 weeks time. I have contacted PALs who have provided me with unsatisfactory advise and it seems I have to do the leg work to approach the hospital departments to retrieve the appropriate medical historical reports of my previous birth and the complications I had to endure. Currently this confusion and lack of support is a massive cause for concern and is affecting my health and is becoming very stressful.
