"The staff that work in maternity unit are so rude!"

About: Leicester Royal Infirmary

I had my 12 week scan today and have been left so angry with my experience. first of all I went up to the desk in the scans department to be told quite bluntly by the receptionist that I had apparently cancelled my scan...news to me! I then insisted to the rude lady that obviously someone had made a mistake. she told me to take a seat in the waiting room where I was called in by the most miserable sonographer ever. After expressing my fears to her she had an abrupt response to every questiion I asked. All the staff made me feel like I was putting them out and making them more work. Arent they meant to work in the care sector?
