"Worst care ever!"

About: University College Hospital

I chose this hospital for antenatal care. My first appointment when I was 9 weeks pregnant was fine, nurse was really nice and I just couldn`t be bothered about rude receptionist as I was too excited about my baby. Then when I had a miscarriage one week later I received no care what so ever. After a week of heavy bleeding I called to get check up. Rude receptionist/nurse, who was lacking some empathy, called me back saying if I was bleeding I don`t need an appointment and they won`t book me in. I went to another hospital where I had ultrasound done and found out that after all that I went through sac was still there and I needed D&C. Maybe nurse in University College Hospital was not educated enough to know what leaving retained pregnancy product can cause or they just don`t care when woman is not pregnant anymore. Would not recommend this hospital!
