About: Queen Alexandra Hospital

I went to A@E after 3 h of vomiting and feeling unable to stand or walk. I am 33 weeks pregnant and I thought the initial evaluation the nurse did was superficial and dismissive. ('I will have the nurse specialist see you, other than that here we are very busy..'). Specialist nurse was more helpful.
