What could be improved

Been told before the scan what happens a bit more and during the tv ultrasound what they are looking for and measuring etc, and being given reassurance.

Waiting time for results going back to Gp 10 days is a long time to wait when you are stress about things and no reasurrance given!!

Anything else?

I wasn't allowed to see the screen and during the scan wasn't told anything, then told after had to wait 10 days.

This is a along time to wait without answers.

You wait 2 weeks for appointment after gp referral so 3 weeks in all then after appointment waiting over 2 weeks to see GP for results. This is way too long to not be told anything and have no reassurance.

When you see a specialist you are told there and then pretty much what the problem is so why should a scan result take so long.

Not good especially when you are trying to concieve.
