"Abandonment from A&E staff"

Unfortunately I suffered a miscarriage in July this year and after a shockingly bad experience of being forgotten about in an A&E cubicle for hours because of an admin error, which resulted in me not even seeing a doctor in 4 hours. I could have understood if they were busy but most just stood around gossiping and eating in the Ward. I was finally transferred to this unit to be looked after by the wonderful nurses. The nurses took the time to give me the care and support I needed and ran through the options for me in detail. I would like to suggest that women who are going through this kind of trauma should be able to go directly to the Ward rather than being subjected to the poor levels of care displayed by the A&E department.
