About: Princess Alexandra Hospital (Harlow)

Anything else?

My Wife has been 2 A&E 4 over 4hrs due 2 pains in her abdomen in which they then moved her 2 EAU where we hav been waitin 4 over another hour. She has been waitin 4 her blood test results 4 over 4hrs now & had been told this shud take no more than 2hrs! We hav been impressed wiv the pregnancy units at this hospital in the past, however feel disappointed wiv A&E & EAU on this occasion! My wife is stil in pain & waitin 4 who knows how much longer!
