About: Leighton Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked


What could be improved

I was 20 wks pregnant and attended leighton with fluid leaking. There was no internal or scans done and was sent home and felt stupid. I went away to oxford for the weekend and was admitted to oxford hospital for 4 days with fluid loss and bleeding. I was scanned and an internal was done straight away.

Anything else?

If i had not attended oxford hospital through my own worry and taken notice of the bad advice of leighton i would not have found out about my very short cervix and a threatned miscarrage. God help a first time mother who would just accept this as normal.
