"Rude and condescending staff"

About: St Mary's Hospital (Manchester)

Some members of staff are very rude and patronising. Was told that I was fine but if I didn't get blood tests i would be discharge me and said I was refusing to accept treatment simply for saying I wanted to call my husband first. When I asked to speak to another member of staff I was talked down to even further and told that it's not normal for pregnant woman to consult their husbands when unsure. Left feeling intimidated, patronised and made a fool of and made to feel forced to seek treatment elsewhere.
