be alone for my maternity care. I am under Warrington hospital. I have heard I needed to be alone to be induced, this scared me. I only found info from the Coronovirus local Facebook community and then from Healthwatch Halton. I was told by HW that there was a helpline for maternity at the hospital. I didn't know this. It seems the other hospital by me, Whiston has different rules. I am anxious and it would help if I knew more info.
I am diabetic and have diabetic retinopathy on arriving at the hospital the clinic was in the usual place. I didn't have to touch anything the doors are automatic and the floors were marked to follow when I arrived at the clinic the receptionist said she could not take my appointment letter , and there were only three or four people waiting to be seen all the chairs were sectioned off some had tape across to make sure patients social distanced . I only waited a short while to go into the clinic all the staff wore pinnies , gloves and masks . I had the back of my eyes photographed first of all and then went into the consultant to get the results and the consultant told me my eyes were stable I found it a good experience as it was quick safe and efficient and the staff told me that they are only dealing with emergency cases in the clinic I could not fault them at all
