About: Kingston Hospital

I was admitted to A & E with a bloated stomach and unable to pass water a week before Christmas. I was admitted very quickly and the nurse put a catheter in me and told that a doctor would be with me shortly . 30 minutes later I was given an iPad to fill out a questionaire even though I was still in a lot lf pain. THREE hours later my boyfriend asked where the doctor was...we were then told that they had forgotten. When I eventually saw one I was discharged with the catheter in me and told to come back in the New Year. As I was 2 weeks pregnant we made an appioinment to have a scan a couple of days later. The nurse said she could see the baby...it was actually the catheter she could see.....shocking....we left the hospital and went straight to Harley Street....it cost a lot of money but everything was sorted out immediately .
