About: University College Hospital Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Wing

(as the patient),

What I liked

I have nothing to say here. As my experience so far has been bad.

What could be improved

I have been diagnosed as being a thalassaemia minor. I am in my 15th week of pregnancy. during my first appointment with the midwife I had informed that my husband is a thalassemia minor. After having received my first ante natal blood test results (that too by post- where as I would have preferred to discuss these in person with a doctor or mid wife) I have tried speaking to the midwife. Whenever I have called the ante natal clinic I have never been connected with the midwife and inspite of continuosly leaving urgent messages nobody from the ante natal clinic has bothered to contact me. I am highly disappointed with the service being provided and the care being taken.
