"maternity services"

About: Solihull Hospital

very poor many times on when maternity services can see/accomodate and treat people. the continul running down of the maternity services leave a blight on the hospital thanks to the managing trust. my 9month pregnant other half has had to endure over a 3hr wait with no reason for a basic procedure and thi is after a near 4hr wait last time where she actually fainted within the unit. poor, very poor. my advice is that if you cannot have a natural trouble free brith to stay away for all other aspects too, go to good hope or heartlands for better care.
