"as pleasant as could be, considering the trauma"

About: George Eliot Hospital

Anything else?

I visited A&E due to threatened miscarriage and was immediately assessed. As I passed baby whilst in A&E, the staff were very thorough and asked for my consent to take to Pathology to be analysed for a possible reason why.

Having experienced a miscarriage before and gone to Leicester Royal Infirmary, I felt George Eliot excelled far more and made the situation a little less traumatic.

My only snag:

(1) There was a minor breakdown in communications - not always fully aware of what would happen next ... but generally the staff were kind, considerate and did their upmost.

(2) Maternity Unit was unavailable to provide an ultrasound *to confirm this was a complete loss* and so I had to wait a week for the next available appointment.
