"A&e without ultrasound"

About: The Queen Elizabeth Hospital (King's Lynn)

We attended because my pregnant wife was bleeding. After 4hours we were sent home. The only thing was done was a blood test which was useless. We were told to come the next day for an ultrasound to the early pregnancy department as they dont provide it at the a&e. We were very disapointed and left worried all night
