"Early pregnancy unit"

About: Queen's Hospital (Romford)

I waited for 5 hours to be seen for cramping and bleeding in my 5th week of pregnancy. After 5 hours no one could give me some clarity about how much longer I would need to continue waiting. I ended up giving up as I felt the stress of sitting in an uncomfortable waiting room for that long would probably make things even worse.
