About: Dorset County Hospital

As my last review wasn't allowed. I have modified this one. I had a MC at 12 weeks. I was admitted to hospital on a Friday where I begged for surgical removal no effort was made to get me a scan because it was a Friday afternoon and I was told I couldn't have a scan until Monday. No woman chooses when they miscarry. I think it's appalling that women are being made to wait. I can not put everything else that happened bar that there was so many errors that this left a devastating effect on me and my future emotion wellbeing in my latest pregnancy. Hope you will allow this to be posted this time.
