"I gave birth at this hospital ..."

About: University Hospital Of Hartlepool

(as the patient),

What I liked

I gave birth at this hospital in September last year. The midwives were amazing, really helpful. The only downfall came after I had given birth when I had complications, no one explained to me what was going on during the surgery, which I was awake for. The staff involved were too busy talking about their overtime rates of pay and how they were missing CSI. I was alone and frightened and needed reassurance.
