"Never been so disappointed or angry G5"

About: Doncaster Royal Infirmary

I came to doncaster A+E with my partner who was having a suspected miscarriag. After waiting two hours we we're moved to the women's and children's ward knowing nothing more than we did prior to entering the hospital a further hour past befor we saw a doctor who examined my partner after which ask her to go back to her bed and she would come speak to her. This is what has got to me the most from today after examining my partner and telling her that she would come talk to her finally we would know what was wrong the doctor just disappeared, later we found this doctor had gone home to be replaced by one who had no idea what was going on with my partner. We waited 4 hours panicking for our unborn child and this women couldn't spend two minutes talking to us. I will never use the nhs the system is a joke I saw no urgency today at all even though a unborn child's life was involved as I am writin this now we still know no more than we did as there is no facility for scans on a nigh!
