About: Queen Alexandra Hospital

1 week after being told I had had a delayed miscarriage I went in to gynae with uncontrollable pains they to which gave me a tablet let me for 3 hours until I buzzed to see what was going to happen sent me home with tablets and said 'if you continue to have this pain we will need to operate' I was fine with this and was told 'call and come back if the pain doesn't go'. I then phone the next evening as pain still really uncontrollable and being sick due to tablets to be told stop taking tablets and wait until Monday to see your GP (today is Saturday) I just feel the staff member I spoke to didn't care as didn't seem to listen to me. Very unhappy still in a lot of pain and now just have to wait.
