About: Sunderland Royal Hospital Sunderland Royal Hospital Sunderland SR4 7TP
My granddaughter has two weeks to go before due to give birth and had attended for a scan. On this occasion her sister took time out from college to accompany her. Following the scan she was seen by a specialist midwife which proved to be a very disturbing experience for both of them.
The pregnant granddaughter was spoken down to as a child rather than a woman in her twenties and she was obviously emotionally challenged by the experience given her conndition amongst other relative problems.
Her sister was mortified and upon trying to intervene a voice was raised to her.
She has since established that this unacceptable conduct and attitude has been the pattern with her sister during the duration of her confinement.
As a person on the academic path towards a career in social work she is appalled that someone vulnersble can be treated with so little dignity and respect so much so that she plans to take her concerns further.
