"community midwife service"

About: Bradford Royal Infirmary

Due to have my second child in 2016, so far the consultants, ultra sound scan staff have been brilliant! But can't say the same for the community midwife service.

Little or rather virtually no communication, difficult to get hold of, very different from when I had my daughter 8 years ago.

They were good once upon a time but this time round I have seen a midwife only twice and I am in my final trimester.

Surely this is against any NHS or hospital guidelines.

Response from Bradford Royal Infirmary

I am very sorry to hear this feedback. We have recently invested in more staff in the community to help with the workload. We now provide drop in sessions in most areas of the city so that women can call in for extra appointments or advice. If we can help on an individual level then we would be very happy to review your care so far and hopefully provide better support for the rest of your pregnancy, please contact Mrs J Walker on 01274 364503 who will be glad to help.
