"Not Impressed"

About: Queen Charlotte's Hospital

This was my first appointment in QC, due to Ealing maternity closure I was refer to QC. I had to wait 1 hr 30 Mins to see midwife for first appointment. I have been told they are very busy. Why enough resources are not put in QC before closing Ealing? I have been asked to book other next antenatal appointment with GP, which my GP always avoid. my GP always refer me to midwife. It seems like a big gap in communication between GP and QC Midwife team. I fells let down by this. My main problem seems QC has not given enough resources to handle extra pressure from Ealing. Very disappointing. I am really worried now about having my baby here.
