About: St George's Hospital (Tooting) (London)

Anything else?

I gave birth at St George's hospital and the midwives were superb, when I went to the ward was a different story and I just saw students ...my hands were hurting and swollen because of the catheter and I still had to look after my newborn and was pretty difficult with my hands in pain, spoke with several nurses who didn't care.. In a moment of terrible pain I took of the tube and blood everywhere I almost fainted, but my hand felt better immediate and after that someone came and asked who took it out, I said it was a nurse... They discharged me and said I could go home then :-o Great!
