"Horrible experience"

About: Newham General Hospital

Yesterday I admitted in a&e newham beacause of bleeding and lower abdominal pain while I am 7 weeks pregnant. Doc did my blood test and urine test than they came to me and said it is misscarriage keep changing your pad. They didn't ask for scan nor did vaginal or cervix checkup not even hormone check. They didn't even tell us what to do. They said I am not going to do anything with you. You are free to go home. You can go now. It was like they had se authority and we are silly foolish people who are begging for treatment. We are paying texes for all this and we were treated like animals.

Next day I booked myself for scan and doctor said my baby is 100%okay I heard his heart beat and they did all other scan and refer me back to my GP.
