"Missed miscarriage at Homerton Hospital"

About: Homerton University Hospital / Gynaecology

(as the patient),

I'm sorry but I couldn't disagree more with the previous lady about treatment at Homerton following the horrible shock at 12 week scan of discovering I'd had a missed miscarriage.

The sonographer was cold and rude without a shred of compassion and we were given no information whatsoever. We were shown to the Early Pregnancy Unit where we sat stunned and crying for 10 mins before a nurse ( I presume, didn't introduce herself so I have no idea) strolled in and casually told said "So you've had a miscarriage but you might have got your dates wrong, come back in a week" and showed us the door.

I've never been more shocked, distraught and utterly disgusted at the total lack of compassion in my life. Why are these people working in this profession at all?
