"Location is good"

About: University Hospital Of North Durham

(as the patient),

What I liked

Location is good

What could be improved

communication was poor, I had to research everything myself and read through paperwork deciphering comments/notes written about myself, as no one ever explained their comments to me face to face

Anything else?

I was shocked to see that in my notes it had been written (never explained to me) that I had an Amniotic band with my pregnancy, after 3months and 6 private scans I finally got to see an expert (arranged by me) in these potentially fatal bands at the RVI, he informed me that I didnt have a band (and never had) it was mis diagnosed by the UHOND sonographer, I cannot explain how traumatised I was by this and my trust in the medical staff was zero
