"awful experiance"

About: Barnsley Hospital

after giving birth to my daughter at Barnsley hospital unfortunately my placenta wouldn't detach so I needed to go to theater to have it removed. I had my daughter at 7pm and wasn't taken in to theater until gone 10pm I was left as I was just after giving birth all that time. I then got the theater there wasn't a surgeon then when there was there was no midwife. the junior midwife I had collapsed during the procedure and was taken out of theater. after this I was put on a ward at 12pm my partner told to leave and the midwife a that where there were not interested in helping only telling me thwy has not had a break all shift. granted was Xmas day but still no excuse. disgusting service
