"My daughter"

About: Wansbeck Hospital

My daughter is pregnant with her first child ,her last child was miscarried ,so this baby is very special to her ! She had pains and went in I the hospital to get checked out about 2 month ago ,where the staff were very abrupt and sent her packing !! She felt as if she had put them out ,but being pregnant for the first time ,she doesn't really understand much of what is going on in her body! Then she was getting tightenings after she had a show ,so she went to the midwife and she booked her in to go and see if everything was okay ,and I saw this first hand that my daughter was ignored ,and made to feel very low !! So as she sees it ,that when she's giving birth ,the doctor and nurses will be there and she is stressing so bad ! It's really not fair ! I want her to enjoy the birth of her son,not think about whether she is gonna get a horrid midwife or doctor!

Response from Wansbeck Hospital

Dear Sir / Madam, I am so sorry to hear that your daughter has had such a poor experience of our care recently. We want her to enjoy the birth of her son also and we don't want her to have any unnecessary anxiety in the build up to the birth. Unfortunately because your feedback is anonymous I cant help as much as I would like to. Do please get in touch with me directly on annie.laverty@nhct.nhs.uk - if there's something troubling you we want to know about it and do everything we can to ensure our care is kind and compassionate at all times. Many thanks for raising this issue online, Annie.
