"i phoned up because i thought ..."

About: Royal Berkshire Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

i phoned up because i thought I was in labour with my 2nd baby. the midwife aske dme some questions and said I should go in. The midwife saw me about half an hour after I arrived and checked me. I was in labour so she said I should stay there. my little girl was born five hours later. it was much quicker this time!

What could be improved


Anything else?

they did seem busy because I heard lots of dorbells and phones ringing whilst i was there. The midwife did say they were too.
