"GAU - urgent treatment of incomplete miscarriage"
About: Royal Derby Hospital / Gynaecology Royal Derby Hospital Gynaecology DE22 3NE
I visited the GAU twice over a week after bleeding during Week 9 of pregnancy. The first was for a scan which unfortunately had to prepare us for an impending miscarriage, the second was a few days later when I began to haemorrhage quite heavily. All the staff I dealt with were supportive and kind. The doctor took quick and effective action to control the haemorrhage. I was fully informed of the situation throughout and included in all decisions. I thought the treatment I received in GAU was a wonderful example of the NHS at its best and I hope all the staff involved in my care are truly proud of the challenging work they do.
