About: North Middlesex Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked


What could be improved

Everything. I was told by the early pregnancy unit that the scan was done well and that I have nothing to worry about. I was then told to wait for another two weeks for another scan. I asked the person that done my scan twice is everything ok and he said dont worry. Anywat two weeks later had my second scan 11/03/10. was told that I had no baby in my sac. I was so lost and could not accept this and started crying like a baby. Thats how shocked i was. I was so hurt. Anyway after spending the whole day at North middlesex I was told to come in the next day 12/03/10 for a termination at 12noon. I got there early maybe 11.40 or so. I waited untill 5pm and still noone had come for me even though i was booked as an emergency. I had no eaten for nearly 24 hours and no water or any drink. I waited again until 6pm then I said what is going on I feel very faint. Noone had anything nice to say. Then another doctor heard me from another department and came to help me, but still I waited untill 7:30 and was then told sorry we cant operate on you today. and then I jusr broke down. They treat you like you are a tramp at this hospital no respect at all and they had not cared that I had no eaten for 24 hours my face was pale and if hadn't had my husband or my mum beside me i dont know how i would have been.
