"Poor maternity care."

About: The Tunbridge Wells Hospital

After I had my baby daughter through a C section in May, I developed a high temperature and abnormal blood test result. They refused to treat me with antibiotics actually and they blamed me that it was too hot in the room and forced me keep the window open although I was shivering. I had to treat myself with antibiotics bought from another country while in Hospital in order to get better. My newborn daughter has also ended-up with a cold because of the continued draft from the window. Awful care! Some of the midwife on the postnatal care were quite rude, as well! The information sent to the GP after discharge was incomplete. Avoid this Hospital especially if you have a foreign connotation name!
