Lily Allen complains about medical negligence

Los Angeles: Singer Lily Allen has made a complaint against a healthcare organisation on a social networking site alleging they didn`t attend to her after her second daughter`s birth.

Allen, who is married to Sam Cooper, gave birth Jan 8 to her second child, daughter Marnie.

She has accused officials of the National Health Service (NHS) of failing to keep in touch with her about her post-natal treatment after she was discharged from hospital Jan 9, reports dailystar.co.uk.

Allen posted on micro-blooging site Twitter to contact the NHS Direct service: "Hi there, can`t seem to find out which hospital`s community midwifery team are coming to see me... I am starting to worry now, and no one answers the phone, or if they do, I just keep getting passed around. Let me know if you can help."

Allen received a reply from NHS Direct, which urged her to look at the organisation`s website and call the appropriate phone number.

Allen`s other daughter Ethel is now 18 months old.
