"Understaffed maternity unit"
About: Lister Hospital Lister Hospital Stevenage SG1 4AB

My wife is in the course of spending three weeks in the maternity unit. The building is nice and new, the midwives (with the exceptional of one) have been fantastic. But they are understaffed and the access to doctors and consultants is appalling. We have consistently been given unfulfilled promises and suffered unnecessary delays. Emotionally distressing and a terrible start to what is meant to be a time of joy.
I dont know how other hospitals compare, but I would advise to think carefully about options and ask for details on staffing levels before committing to this place for such an important event.
