"Really poor maternity service!!!"

About: The Whittington Hospital

I am a 20 weeks pregnant woman who had to use the emergency department due serious cramps in the belly. After 6 hours waiting i've been sent home saying it is normal but I felt it wasn't. I went to see a private doctor and they found out I had internal bleeding in my womb!!! I would suggest to everyone to follow your instincts!!!! And choose an other hospital where you don't have to wait hours and take you seriously!! This is absolutely unacceptable!!!!
