"Maternity Waiting Times!!"

About: Queen Alexandra Hospital

It is understandable that sometimes emergencies will and do occur, however, the waiting times for a scan at QA are horrendous. When a time for a scan is given you can expect a minimum of an hour after this regardless of time. We had an appointment time of 0930 and it was 1045 when we were called in. This is the shortest time we had been waiting. A new system for the issue of appointment times is required!!
