Nothing

What could be improved

I am 39 +3 weeks pregnant. I had an appointment at FAU at 10.20 after high BP, oedema and protein was recorded two days earlier. I was seen at 11.45. Was admitted to hope ward at 12.10 to see a consultant regarding possible pre-eclampsia. I was left waiting until 15.50 where my BP was taken again. Was told the consultant would NOW be called. (even though I was admitted to see someone). I complained numerous times from 6pm as I had still not been seen and finally met a consultant at 7.30 pm. All that happened was that more blood was taken and I was sent home at 8.45. 10 1/2 hours after my initial appointment. I will be finding another hospital to continue my ante natal treatment.
