"Concerns about care Newham hospital"

About: Newham General Hospital / Maternity care

(as a parent/guardian),

We came here today for outpatient induction as asked 7.30 we still here with loads more people at 14. 30

First we were told just wait here and midwife will meet you soon. After 2 hours finally some news no beds and doctor.

Our notes was given individualy no one care to check them.

Finaly at 11am they take us for check, but again no doctor still waiting.

My big concern are we going to give a birth in cooridors? Does anyone care whats going on?

Feel just sorry for quite a few couples having contractions every 3 min and still need to wait.

It's still ongoing please take attention.

Thank you
