"Absolutely disgusting No manners at all. So..."

About: Weston General Hospital

After having a frightening experience due to an early pregnancy I was told to go and visits A&e at Weston. On arriving all ok, nurse checked blood pressure and asked me to do a urine sample. After waiting a hour and a half to be called. I saw a doctor who was extremely rude, they said I see you are 10 weeks pregnant, I said no I'm actually 8 weeks, which was responded with "well how do you know your 8 weeks?" I said by going by my last period. Which they responded " well how do you even know your pregnant?" I said because my GP done a test when I saw him 2 weeks ago and my GP told me and I've done a home test also. They then responded by saying " well just to make you aware most first early pregnancies end in miscarriage so be propared" (my husband and I have been trying for 2 years with difficulties through the way and he was just so rude) there was no smiles no manner by any of the staff. A&E at Weston needs a big shake up with staff.
