"Hospital review"

About: Blackpool Victoria Hospital

What I liked

My nephews girlfriend was not treated properly. She gave birth to her son in the ambulance. The midwife was there. The next day the midwife was not available so she had to travel to Blackpool Vic for an injection due to the fact she is AB- with her baby. They were kept in the hospital for @ 4-5hrs. Then was told she had high blood pressure and was sent home. The next day she had to go back to the hospital because of high blood pressure and swellings in her legs. She was kept in for several hrs again. And yet again sent home

What could be improved

Young mothers need help She was not shown anything and had to travel to and from hospital as the midwife was the only one in the area available. I feel that this is a disgrace and where is the NHS heading.
