Scan delays

I was shocked to read that half of women who miscarry are forced to wait 24 hours for a scan (your report, 17 June). I was less surprised, however, that they were treated alongside women with healthy pregnancies – because that happened to me.

But every single member of staff at the hospital I attended treated me with a huge amount of compassion; they had seen this sort of thing countless times but knew what it meant to me and my partner. We must never take the humans in our health service for granted.
