About: The Royal Victoria Infirmary The Royal Victoria Infirmary Newcastle Upon Tyne NE1 4LP
My daughter has juat given birth this is second baby born there and their is a huge differnce in the standard of care. The assement unit is a joke. Its dirty and the staff do not listen to you and treat you like your in the way. Passing the blame if something goes wrong. Once you go into labour the staff try their best but the labour ward is old and tired. once you go onto the wards it gets worse. Lack of care time and patience. Dirty unfrendly and short staffed. No good if its your first baby. Pleased get out. After being told you can go home it then takes 9 hours for staff nurse to do papework. overall terrible experience place needs closed down and started again. Did not meet one patient who was totally happy with the way they were treated. assement unit is a diagrace im not suprised they make so many mistake. Would advise anyonr to think twice before they take a risk with their health or their babys. the change from last time is shocking and very sad. The maternity at the rvi is getting a really bad reputation and I fully agree. Disgusting.
