"Birthing unit"

About: Queen's Hospital (Romford)

I recently had my second baby at the birthing unit. The midwives were very good and helped me through the whole process. The hospital was clean and midwives responded when called for help. The only thing that was disappointing was listening to constants work place gossip! Should be done in private, not in front of patients.

Response from Queen's Hospital

Thank you for your comment on NHS Choices. I am really pleased that you had such a positive experience overall in our birthing unit. Our staff work really hard to give great care. I am sorry you found our staff to be talking about work in front of you and other patients. I will raise this as a matter of urgency with our Director of Midwifery Wendy Matthews to ensure this practice stops. Yours sincerely, Flo Panel-Coates Chief Nurse
