"I feel that a lot of my trauma could have been minimised"

About: Good Hope Hospital / Accident & emergency Heartlands Hospital / Gynaecology

(as the patient),

Went to a and e at bhh presenting at 11/40 with heavy pv bleed. R/v by nurse practitioner told to go home and await events and booked me in for s scan in 10/7. Clearly I was very distressed as I was worried about pregnancy. With the worry I ended up going to mums (private h/c facility) and was told I had lost my baby (and had to pay £80). I had no care and ended up losing my very precious baby down the toliet the next day and went onto to lose 2 litres of blood and collapsed and ended up in gynae ward. I am still traumatised by the events that happened at hope following the loss of my baby. If the anp had booked a scan to investigate the Pv bleed on admission a lot of my trauma could have been minimised.
