I am 6 weeks pregnant and encountering early complications. Upon arriving at Lewisham A&E department, I queued for 45 minutes to check in before anybody knew I was here.
I went to the toilet to provide a urine sample and was horrified. The stench was beyond anything I have ever experienced and it was in such a mess! There was no toilet paper, no paper towels, no hand soap or sanitiser. I then tried 5 different hand sanitiser units in A&E department and close by - all were completely empty.
All being well, I'll be giving birth at Lewisham and the distinct lack in care for basic hygiene really concerns me.
In more positive news, all of the doctors and nurses o have seen so far have been very pleasant.
