"Murray ward"

About: Conquest Hospital

Yesterday my girlfriend had to go hospital to see the midwifes and doctors for a scan because her baby was breech and she only has just under 3weeks left. We were there for a while, and were told that we'd be seen soon, but then 3 hours later we get told to go home because no one is free to see us. They told us we can stay but we may be waiting a long time or not even get seen today, so we just went home because no doctor could see us. Sorry but I think at least every other ward should have a doctor working. I've previously had a still birth at this hospital, although it was a long time ago. I really think they need to sort it out because there baby's and I think baby's should come first and before it happened to someone eles?????
