"Terrible nursing staff"

About: Peterlee Community Hospital

I went to the walk in centre as i am 26 wks pregnant and could not get in my own doctors,turns out i had a water infection and was pain with my stomach,the nurse was very unfriendly and said because i was pregnant i should not have gone there. Very uncaring and i shall not be returning to this walk in centre,it was an emergency and i thought thats what it was there for. My partner and myself were not happy about the way i was spoke to as a pregnant woman its a very scary time and not knowing what the pain was,in future i shall go to another walk in centre.
