A1) Contact EPU on 01932 722662 or attend A&E if symptoms are worsening.

Q3) What happens if I cannot get an appointment with my GP?

A3) You can call EPU on 01932 722662 in working hours for advice or attend A&E if you have significant pain or excessive bleeding

 

Q4) I have been asked to return for another scan. Will this affect the outcome of my pregnancy?
