"emergency ceasarian"

About: City Hospital (Birmingham)

After a frantic dash to the maternity dept on the evening of the 21/9/15 . my grandson was delivered almost immediately by emergency section. He was resuscitated by the emergency staff and immediately transferred to the university hospital in stoke.

I cannot express how grateful I am to the staff that delivered him and didn't give up on him. he is now home and doing well.

The only criticism would be of the one maternity administrator who copped an attitude with my daughter when she first arrived at the maternity unit.

A shame that such an amazing dept should be let down by one person.
