"Im not looking forward to ever returning to st..."

About: St Mary's Hospital (Manchester)

What I liked

Im afraid there was nothing I liked about my experience at st Marys, Im glad Im giving birth at ninewells in Dundee where I know I would be treated with dignity.

What could be improved

The doctor I saw had no empathy, the support worker who took BP etc had very unpleasant attitude, I'm used being told or asked to put arm here or there so this or that can be placed on my body part not have applianced thrusted on me like I am a vegetable! I was also advised to call for results but now told results is not given over the phone.

Anything else?

I feel at 34 weeks pregnant and being in a lot of pain what I might overlook in my usual state of health does not apply now however I also know what being treated with indifference is and I experienced this from both doctor and support worker. I broke down and cried when it all got over whelming for me and even felt more humiliated being stared at as if I was being unreasonable.
