"No communication whatsoever"

About: Liverpool Womens Hospital

36+3 weeks pregnant and have been waiting over 2 weeks for an emergency consultants appointment requested by my GP. So far 2 midwives have failed to get the appointment arranged and after one of them called the Womens hospital in front of me the person on the phone said no appointment had ever been requested through something called 'medi-tech'. As a result, I've not been asked about what pain relief options I would like and still unsure as to wether I'll need to have a c section. Very close to due date now and starting to show signs of labour. Feel so worried and let down by the communication of the staff.
