"Obstetrics and over night stay"

About: Chelsea & Westminster Hospital

My wife had a suspected miscarriage, the consultant in the early maternal suite was rude, did not listen to our whole story and jumped too quickly to a diagnosis (different to miscarriage). We were given half an hour to decide if she was to go into surgery, the doctor) seemed in a hurry and didn't care we were upset by what was being said. We went for a second opinion at a private doctor who told us a completely different diagnosis and that nothing needed to be done except wait. It is now 3 weeks later and my wife is perfectly healthy but has no trust for this hospital as they were so quick to put her on an operating table and under general anaesthetic (dangerous procedure). Very very poor.
