"Delivery Planning Appointment 36 Weeks"

About: Sittingbourne Memorial Hospital

Booked in for 2pm , seen at 2:20 for BP / US then 2:30 for Consultant. Appointment began in an odd fashion and it soon became clear that my file hadn't been examined prior. Many questions repeated from previous appointments and little empathy shown during. Decision to deliver by C-section met with mild disdain from the consultant. Told delivery would be booked for 39 weeks. Asked to provide swabs and another US. The reason I am leaving a review is I have just been to Medway Maritime for sizing scan and it has become apparent that my samples were not submitted for analysis and my C-Section was not booked. Very unhappy and disappointed with the service (not) provided.
