"My wife's pregnancy"

About: The Queen Elizabeth Hospital (King's Lynn)

The staff are fantastic although extremely understaffed and fighting a desperate battle to maintain any sort of service.

My wife spent 3 days on an observation ward apparently in danger of high blood pressure and was convieniantly forgotten about . Then when a plan was put in place finally they moved to the delivery suite and forgot about her again.

As all this was happening through uncertainty of discharge or admittance I spent best part of £50 on parking. Not to mention the high prices in the facilities in the food court.

In summation, I'm now still waiting for my daughter to be born and am thoroughly upset at the whole situation.
