"Unnecessary delay at Lincs A&E"

About: Lincoln County Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as the patient),

I had overall good care but told staff three times that there was a high chance of being pregnant and they still sent me down for a X-ray on my hip. I then had to explain again that there is a chance I am pregnant and was sent back to A&E asking that I do a pregnancy test.

But then it was decided to send me home without one and in which time we had missed our last bus. If they had listened to me straight away I might have got home properly and safely.
