"Issue made more tramatic then it should have been"

About: Royal Surrey County Hospital

What I liked

Nothing

Anything else?

Had to go to A&E with bleeding during early pregnancy. Me and my partner were in bits (crying shaking etc) but were made to sit in in a corridor with a constant stream of people gawping at us. No dignity what so ever. I had to explain to 5 people what was happening, not one of the nurses or drs bothered read my notes. It was heartbreaking having the explain something so upsetting over and over again. One doctor even questioned if i was actually pregnant or just wished i was!. This is after they had preformed a pregnancy test and i had show them pictures of my positive tests!! Was given a blood test, which was meant to be repeated 48hrs later. When i asked if i should she my dr about this. i was no told there was no need. I will never use this hospital again
