Solicitor attacks Queens maternity services
PUBLISHED: 10:29 03 May 2011
A solicitor representing a number of women who were treated at Queen’s Hospital’s maternity unit says she wants services at the Romford hospital to be improved.
Solicitor Sarah Harman represented the family of Sareena Ali, whose baby was stillborn and who died days later.
Ms Harman has since been approached by Saira Choudhri, 31, who was found bloodsoaked in the hospital’s car park after being sent home, though her contractions were two minutes apart.
The solicitor wants families to come forward with their experiences, good and bad, at Queen’s.
She said: “I think we can make a difference to women in Romford, take the tragedy of Sareena’s death and try to make things better so mothers can enjoy giving birth at Queen’s.”
Director of midwifery at Queens, Carol Drummond, said: “I want every woman to have a positive experience of maternity care, and I take the concerns of these women extremely seriously.”
