This hospital were amazing, I suffered a miscarriage and the circumstances were difficult. I couldn't contact my partner so I was very distressed. As soon as I arrived I was sat down, had my blood pressure taken then asked to give a urine sample. As soon as I returned from the loo they took me and sat me down, offered me a cup of tea and a sandwich. I had a long wait but I was comfortable and kept informed. The worst part was being taken to a maternity ward and having to sit in a birthing room alone waiting for a consultant and a nurse to be free at the same time as the consultant was a man and couldn't see me alone. This was probably the worse place I could of been kept waiting as I just kept thinking oh I should of been here in 5 months time. That said the staff were all very comforting and one of the doctors held my hand and hugged me making me feel a little comforted. In general the staff were amazing and the tea and sandwich were actually very good and that they actually walk around in A&E throughout the day to make sure people are given something to eat is a lovely touch.
