"Very bad - go elsewhere"

About: St Mary's Hospital (London)

The care in the maternity triage unit is terrible. Women pouring out the doors, wait time over 4/5 hours to be seen by a specialty doctor in obstetrics who even after that time won't bother to come and see you.

Midwives extremely rude, uncaring and patronising. A disaster waiting to happen. Really really awful and worryingly bad maternity care. I'm really scared now about my health and the health of my unborn baby.

I wish I had never booked here.
