Hospitals and Inequality

My local hospital Chase Farm doesn't have the greatest reputation and locally lots of people moan about it. It is where I have been going for all of my antenatal classes and where the baby will be born. However, I refuse to moan about the hospital - not only has the care I have received been brilliant but I read newspaper articles like this that make me realise once again how amazingly blessed we all are in this country. How can I begin to complain when women in Niger face a 1 in 7 chance of dying in childbirth?

makes you think doesn't it?
On a positive note, our Caleb was born at Chase farm and he has done well for himself - I cannot fault the delivery team who were excellent!

As much as I complain about the NHS (mainly re my foot!) i was speaking to my flatmate from jersey who was so excited about the fact that she could go talk to our uni GP without paying £25... even that is something i've always completely taken for granted.
