"No one answer the calls. Law of the minimun..."

About: King's College Hospital (Denmark Hill)

I am trying to contact the Antenatal Clinic, is been almost 2 hours and still no one answered the phone.

Earlier I tried to contact Maternity Helpline during its open hour but the answer machine jumped saying that they were close!

Yesterday I tried to call Labour Ward and again no one answer the phone.

I wonder if there is people actually working at this hospital.

It's unnaceptable that this is happening in a hospital in London.


I also had a doctor who told me that scanners can damage my baby or myself...absurd!

They said that they prefered the "traditional" method of using hands to touch because they thinks is more reliable.

When I told this to other gynecologists they all agreed that that is nonsense.

How on earth touching can be better than looking into a screen where you actually can see everything?

I also had a student gynecologist who told me that ALT (Alanine Transaminase) are not transaminase.

I am very dissapointed by Kings College Hospital and scared by the mistakes that some of the doctors made when I saw them.
