"Emergency and early pregnancy useless"

About: Luton & Dunstable Hospital

I was experiencing a miscarriage, in emerge after have been seen by a young doc who told me they would have referred me to the early pregnancy clinic for a scan to see how far was the miscarriage. After 3 hours no one called me and I have decided to go to the EPU,they told me that no one referred me and I had to go back to emergency. The receptionist, was eating Mcdonald told me that if I wanted to be seen, just the doctor in emergency could have done it. No one in EPU or gynaecology would be able to visit me. I was in pain and upset for my baby loss. They didn't show any compassion or help, was just busy eating food! I found the service useless and very uncomfortable. I referred to the complaining office and they told me the doctor shouldn't have told me that someone would have visited me. I was bleeding heavily and in pain. And according to them I should have waited 1 week to be seen by a doctor. I would like to see them in the same situation!

The only thing they could ask was "do you want a pain relief?" no one take care in that horrible place. Horrible place, that hospital is a nightmare. I thank God to move out from this town. Useless service. Have this people a heart? Have they been ever sick or in need? They do jot know what humanity means. If you can avoid this place. Run miles far from L&D hospital.
