About: Queen's Hospital, Burton Upon Trent

Anything else?

At a simple appointment for a scan the staff lost my notes and left me waiting for 2 hours, I asked how much longer I would need to wait and they told me to sit down, when they did find them a lady took my blood pressure and said to me oh I'll have to use the other machine on your fat arms!! When I presented my urine sample the nurse wouldn't take it and told me to dip the stick in myself as she didn't have gloves on and said she didn't want to have to wash her hands, and then when I told her I was tired I got told "that's what happens when your pregnant and overweight" I came out and cried my eyes out and as soon as I speak to my midwife I am requesting to change hospitals
