"Worst experience ever"

About: St Mary's Hospital (Manchester)

I thought expecting a baby was an happy event?

That's not how the staff made us feel like. It looked like we were in a factory. We were treated like pieces of meat. We had a nuchal scan scheduled and we handled 5 minutes in the room with the lady. First we were not informed that my wife had to come with a full bladder and second the lady was an horrible person with no skills nor customer service. She dared saying 'One more that comes with an empty bladder' to her colleague. On top of that, she was hurting my wife which is not really the main purpose I guess.

We ended up asking for our notes back and walked out.

If you're not happy with your job, it will be much appreciated to consider another career instead of passing on your bad energy to people.

Shame on her! Worst experience ever, we will certainly never come back there again!
