"Emergency Gynaecology and Early Pregnancy..."

About: Queen's Medical Centre

I had appointment this morning for the scan,for failed pregnancy.It was a second scan to make sure it is right,as first scan two weeks before already showed failed pregnancy.The appointment started at 10am.After the scan it was confirmed the worst,and after short talk with nurse me and my husband been advised to wait for a consultant/doctor for more information and options in a waiting room.We have been waiting for a consultant/doctor for a 5 hours!! with no avail.Asking at the reception every hour for how much longer we have to wait as it is 5 hours we have been waiting already! And every time we been told no longer than another half an hour.But after 5 hours we decided to leave without any results as could not bare to spend another hour in that waiting room and also my husband needed to go to work.So still do not know what happened with my pregnancy and what should i do in this situation.
