About: Torbay Hospital

Anything else?

This hospital is an absolute joke. I waa brought in at 6pm last night with a suspected blood clot and as I am 5 months pregnant my gp was very concerned. It is now 1:30 pm and I have yet to have anything done. They have not even listened to the baby's heartbeat to check he/she is ok. If I had come in here drunk or had been fighting I would have been given a better service.
