"A nightmare"

About: St Helier Hospital

What I liked

I have the worst experience of my life and I guess it was the worst decision to select st heleirs for the delivery of my first baby after 3 misscarriages at the same place.

The staff don't tell u truth about ur progress and worst are the doctors i had vaginal assisted delivery for which i was given stitches and the nightmare was that the stitches were not done correctly and my Gp advised me to get it redone. Please i request the patients not to think of going to st.heleirs for any reason.

I had three misscarriages as well and they were also not a pleasant experience.

What could be improved

Just treat patients as human being not ur subject. I think there is a lack of staff and all staff are over worked.

For Gods sake do something cuz u are playing with human lives .
