What I liked
Everyone that we met was friendly and supportive. We actually visited A and E twice on Sunday, and the EPU on Monday, so met lots of different people. The fact that everyone was so friendly and supportive reassured me greatly during what was a traumatic experience, our first miscarriage. I knew there was nothing that could be done, but just a friendly smile reassuring you that what was happening was 'normal' really helped to calm my nerves. They were also able to find us a private room to give us some space while we were waiting for a the doctor.
What could be improved
The waiting times were my only complaint. Although I completely understand why they exist, especially as our second visit to A and E was during a busy period.
Thank you to everyone for working so hard - wish i could buy you a bigger and newer department, you deserve it for all your hard work!
