Lost confidence in my hospital, can I swap a week before I deliver?

38w pregnant, high risk pregnancy. I'm booked to deliver at one hospital (hospital A), but I have all my scans at another one in the same NHS trust (hospital B).

I've repeatedly been advised one thing by A only to be given different advice by B. The consultants I see at B seem much more informed and keep sending me back to A to be reassessed. Hospital A seem much more casual and less concerned about me/baby compared to B.

Today I've been shuttled from A to B and back to A again because B aren't happy with the assessment from A. Not the first time something similar has happened.

My confidence in A is shot. I originally booked at A because it's a bit closer to home and they have a lovely midwife-led unit (which is now of no value to me as I am high risk).

Is it at all possible to switch hospitals at this late stage and how would I make it happen?

Yes, I would phone hospital B today to get the ball rolling though as you might not have much time! Xx
