"Wish i never had to take services from this..."

About: University Hospital (Coventry)

Dont get your child born here. Worst possible place to be for delivery. You can never know what, when and how. There will be no doctor visiting you anytime when you are in pain or need. Consultants are over burdened. Midwives are lost as they dont get any info from doctors. I wish i never have to visit here for anything.

They have encouraged new mums to take advantage of the Friends and Family Test cards as well as use our own Impressions survey to give feedback on their labour/birth and postnatal care. In direct response to this feedback they have introduced a number of new initiatives including allowing partners to stay overnight, increased the number of nursery nurses and provide forums that allow mums to recent better information before they are discharged.
