"Little help from Royal Bolton Antenatal Clinic"

About: Royal Bolton Hospital / Maternity care

(as the patient),

I visited the Royal Bolton hospital's Antenatal clinic as an outpatient last month. I had to wait for nearly an hour before I was seen by a doctor, and when I was seen, I felt that I had wasted my time being there because it was no help whatsoever. I came away more anxious and certainly less confident than before I went in.

I have been invited to go back to see the consultant again for my unanswered questions. Thank goodness the nursing staff are consistent and helpful!
