"Very disappointed"

About: Leicester Royal Infirmary / Gynaecology

I was referred to attend by my doctor due to an emergency and bleeding. The nurse kept me waiting 4 hours before I was seen. It took 5 min conversation and told me to go home. I did explain that I'm in lots of pain and I'm bleeding but the nurse didn't listen. Two hours after I went home I had a miscarriage and lost my baby.
