My wife recently miscarried, and was informed that she was entitled to treatment to help pass what remains of her pregnancy. She was asked to come into the ward to speak to the duty doctor to confirm further treatment. So on the 19 sept 2013 at about 1345 hrs my wife arrived and was asked to wait to be seen. After waiting for approximately 1 hour my wife approached the nurses station to enquire what was happening with regards to her appointment, and the nurses replied with a less than satisfactory response and told her to continue waiting. Another hour passed and still no doctor, again my wife approached the nurses station to inquire about the wait and they again replied with "I don't know how long you will have to wait, it could be a minute, and hour or more." At this point my wife was forced to leave due to having to feed my 16 month old child. This is the second time we have used this hospital and both times the treatment can only be described as appalling.
