"Important oversights"

About: Medway Maritime Hospital

Anything else?

Visited A and E whilst having a miscarriage, got taken in straight away which was fantastic, lady doctor was brillant and caring as was the gynocologist... advised them of an ongoing pain in side which was causing me real problems/pain but they didn't seem to hear that and were just treating me for the loss of the baby... Two weeks later I had my appendix removed and whilst having this done they found a cyst larger than my ovaries (had this sorted privately) If only they had done a scan when I was admitted to A and E they may have found the cyst and I would not of had to pay privately to get my pain treated and resolved... Feel that there was a real oversight that could have potentially caused a lot of problems....
