About: North Manchester General Hospital

Anything else?

I attended NMGH with a suspected impending miscarriage and when I became upset because I couldn't have a scan I was told by a midwife I was being selfish and other patients needed it more than me. After a traumatic miscarriage at home I was taken to A&E and seen by a consultant who told me everything had'gone' and I could go home. 5 months later and many, many visits to the hospital I was finally given a scan and it showed I had retained products, which resulted in an operation. I was told it was my own fault as I had ' refused' an examination from the consultant- not true. I was not offered one neither did I know the consequences of not having one. Dreadful, dreadful care. Horrible memories which sadly I will never forget.
