"The diabetes clinic on Mondays ..."

About: Northwick Park Hospital

(as the patient),

What could be improved

The diabetes clinic on Mondays for pregnant women is awful. I have attended this clinic weekly by appointment since I was about 19 weeks pregnant. On average I have waited 2.5 hours for a 60 second appointment with the doctor and nurse. I and other women feel very rushed. I feel that my concerns are not taken seriously, and feel very fobbed off. i have told the doctors and nurses this, but I guess noone really cares, as long as targets are met. I am terrified about how I will be treated when I go into labour.
