"The attention the diabetic nurses ..."

What I liked
The attention the diabetic nurses and obstetrics department paid to me was wonderful. Also the nurses in the children's ward where my baby daughter passed away were lovely, even sending a condolence card a year later to acknowledge the anniversary of her death. This was going far beyond what I expected from them.
What could be improved
The Dukeries building is an eyesore. I didn't want to give birth there due to the curled up carpets and dirty looking furniture. This is not the problem of the staff, it is the age of the building.
Also, the DVLA requested I be seen by the Diabetic Consultant , and his receptionist was incredibly rude, telling me he 'did not want to see' me. She didn't consult him on this, just refused to let me see him... I did not get my driving licence back for 8 months as a result of her obstinance. If I can't get an appointment with him for a short consultation to get my licence renewed (something I then had to go to my GP for months later) then what on earth does he do all day?
The nurses and chaplain are very very helpful and hopefully with my next pregnancy, I will receive the same care as I did before, but I will refuse to see the diabetic consultant.
