"Would have left no stars if allowed - appaling..."

About: East Surrey Hospital

Anything else?

Attended hospital with a miscarriage, appaling insensitive staff would never go back there. As a policy it isn't appropriate to let miscarrying women wait in an obstetrics scanning department for hours watching pregnant women going in for scans. The sonographer then didn't have the correct background for the case and was rude and inappropriate, Had excellent care previously at St Georges and would go back there in an instant.
