"Waiting 4 days to be induced so far."

Was sent as an emergency to St James Maternity Assessment Centre by my community Midwife at 38 wks because of high blood pressure. Was told to insist I was induced (already had an induction date for a week later due to this, poorly controlled epilepsy and other serious health problems).
Got there only to be constantly fobbed off by all the consultants, despite one of them days earlier offering me an induction date of my choosing. Apparently even tho my blood pressure had increased they were too busy to treat me.
I had to insist I was admitted. So far, while on induction ward I have been told I'll just have to sit and wait. If someone comes in needing delivery suite then tough.
The ward I'm on is dirty (there's old blood on the floor from previous patients next to my bed).
I've been told I'll be given a time/ date for induction while I have relatives visiting, as soon as they leave excuses are given .
I was spoken down to and rudely to by a consultant and told if I didn't like it go to a different hospital.
They've missed doses of my medication.. I'm honestly dreading giving birth here.
