"Difficulties in getting an appointment with the..."

About: The Royal London Hospital / Maternity

My midwife referred to see the obstetrician 4 weeks ago to see the obstetrician to discuss having a cesarean section.

Since I did not receive an appointment letter, I called the hospital 2 weeks later and was told that they received the referral but were deciding which obstetrician should see me.

I waited for another week and called again.

This time they told me there was no referral at all.

My midwife did the referral again and 1 week later I called the hospital they are still staying there is no referral at all!

The last call I had with the hospital they were trying to dissuade me from even seeing the obstetrician which is totally unprofessional.

My baby is due soon and time is running out.
