About: Queen's Medical Centre

Got referred by my gp as had suspected miscarriage, only to be sat waiting for 6 hours before being seen by a doctor! To be told they have no spaces left for a scan so could I return in the morning! I asked once after being sat for 4 hours how long they think it would be in the politest possible way, to be abruptly cut off and told there very busy and how longs a piece of string! Very unprofessional and not understanding of woman going through a heartbreaking time!
