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?
