Response from Kettering General Hospital

I am very disappointed to hear that you feel so unhappy about having your baby at Kettering. I would like very much to understand how we can work to improve your view of our maternity unit and how we can help your experience to become significantly more positive. If you could contact me directly, we can have that fuller conversation.

The statement you make regarding ‘lies’ in your records is very serious, and I would welcome the opportunity to understand what you believe has happened so that I might take the most appropriate and immediate action. I would urge you to contact me as soon as possible on 01536 491594. Or alternatively you can contact your Community midwife directly, or Polly Leigh, the Lead Midwife for the Community teams on 01536 492902.
