"Awful pregnancy scan experience"

About: Royal Bolton Hospital

Avoid at all costs if you want to be able to see your baby, ensure everything is okay and actually be treated like a person! Worst experience ever having our 20 week scan, left feeling unsure if anything was wrong or if everything was okay, didn't get to see the baby once and was not spoken to apart from 2 over the shoulder comments from the nurse conducting the scan! Myself, my partner and my mother all left disgusted and not in the know! Would 100% choose to pay for private scans over and over in future where you actually get treated like a human being, shown your baby and made to feel comfortable knowing your baby is okay! Having to pay for another private scan elsewhere due to having such a bad one at this hospital!

Response from Royal Bolton Hospital

I am very sorry to hear that you felt you had a poor experience at your ultrasound examination in May 2016. This is not how we wish our women and their families to feel after what is usually a very positive experience. If you would like to get in touch with me, I would be very happy to discuss your concerns. Judith Cuthbert,

Lead Sonographer, Tel: 01204 390915
