"Unacceptable wait time , disorganised maternity..."
About: Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Hospital Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Hospital Margate CT9 4AN
Late in pregnancy and very uncomfortable my sons girlfriend visited the hospital for tests and advice , having traveled 25 miles from their home ( their allocated maternity service ) they waited for two hours to see a doctor who hadn't a clue what to do and said they should wait to see an obstetric registrar ( the hospital which serves an area of many thousands had only 1 obstetric registrar on the premises who was in theatre ) and so they waited , more and more uncomfortable , anxious , hungry and tired , 4 hours later they still hadn't been seen . My vet doesn't treat animals this way !!! The irony is both of them and myself work for the nhs !!! Finally 6 hours and 25 minutes later , fobbed off with a prescription and sent home ... Terrible care for a distressed mother to be .
