"Worst hospital ..never opt..NHS should investigate"

About: Queen Charlotte's Hospital

Hi, I have been to many maternity hospitals but this is one of the worst. I have visited atleast 10 times and all the time I have to wait more than a hour after my appointment time. I got a feeling that they don't have any appointment system. After a hours wait when you ask staff, they just wonder and search your file and say you are so and so in queue. They have one scan room, but staff of that room works is some other hospital. But they book scan for that room and keep people waiting and waiting. If you enquire after long wait, they tell, someone will see when they free as some problem with room you are booked in. It seems this is problem with everyone there as you can see lots of furious to be mums fighting with staff. Doctors are all the time late and NHS should investigate how this hospital is run causing so much pain to people for one of the life time event like pregnancy in everyone's life . To get furious and frustrated when staff & doctors keep doing chit chat and passing time even people are waiting for hours n hours. Total blunder... If it is once or twice ..one can understand ..but consistently all the time.
