"Antenatal Care & blood tests - appalling"
Posted by Anonymous
I am 22 weeks pregnant and to this day not one blood test has been performed correctly. I had to go back this morning after the Cutty Sark Midwife told me everything was in the computer and they need two samples taken, waited 2 hours and they just took one blood test. The nurse told me to escalate the problem to their supervisor who blamed the midwife (whoever's fault it is I wanted a solution!) and they simply told me that I would have to come back for a fourth blood test.... The midwife are on answering machine most of the day and I wont be able to get results for another few days if ever. I am appalled by the lack of care and support in this process and cannot understand how it is possible to mess up something so straight forward. Before that I also had some blood tests taken at the A&E at 8 weeks that disappeared. All in all I have no viable results of none of the 7 blood tests i have had since the beginning of my pregnancy, putting my baby and me in physical danger and emotional stress. I have one word disgraceful.
