"My pregnant gf"

About: Leicester General Hospital

Anything else?

My gf is 30 odd weeks pregnant , she has had a high pulse rate . She went in , was seen by the few staff that were there! ( not many ) She some times waited 6-7 hrs before the nurses bothered to see her , was always promised she would be seen and could go home as her pulse rate was better . This went on for 3-4 days , in the end she discharged herself ! There is hardly any staff on , un helpful , useless, ignorant . We are hoping to change hospitals so she can have our baby else where!
