"Hysteroscopy"

About: New Stobhill Hospital / Gynaecology Clinic

(as the patient),

It was done without anaesthetic. It was excruciatingly painful. I was not made aware of my options beforehand. I was left feeling traumatised, shocked. I felt violated.

Hello Julyrc63,

I'm very sorry to read of your experience, it does not reflect our care standards or the person centred approach to care that we strive to deliver to all patients. You have raised a number of concerns and we would welcome the opportunity to look into these in more detail. If you would be happy to do so, could you please email me your details such as name, date of birth and CHI number (if possible), to allow us to investigate your experience in more detail? You can reach me at Rachel.pyle@ggc.scot.nhs.uk

Best wishes,

Rachel

Hi Rachel,

thank you for your message.

I have submitted a formal complaint, still waiting for a response.

Can I ask what can you add to this process?

Kind regards.

Hello julyrc63,

Thank you for getting back to me. I understand that your concerns will be investigated under Stage 2 of the NHSGGC Complaints Process. The formal complaints process is separate to the process for responding to feedback like Care Opinion posts so we aren’t able to offer anything additional to this. Although, please be assured that if you have submitted a complaint, it will be investigated fully and thoroughly by our Complaints Department.

There are a number of forms of support and information you can access to help you make your complaint using the formal process. I have included some links and resources below:

Citizen’s Advice Scotland and NHS Inform have some information:

https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/scotland/health/nhs-healthcare-s/nhs-complaints-s/

https://www.nhsinform.scot/care-support-and-rights/health-rights/feedback-and-complaints/feedback-complaints-and-your-rights

The Patient Advice and Support Service (PASS) are an independent organisation run by Citizen’s Advice Scotland, who can offer support and advice about making a complaint: https://www.cas.org.uk/pass

It would also be helpful if you could confirm with the Complaints Department any other concerns you may have that you would like to be investigated, so that they can conduct a full and thorough investigation.

Very best wishes,

Rachel

Thank you for your response Rachel.

Just to let you know, it has now been over a month since I made an update to my initial complaint and I have had no response at all from Stobhill Hospital Glasgow, except to acknowledge receipt of complaint.

Not at all impressed with the NHSGGC Complaint Process!

In the meantime, how many other women are undergoing the same barbaric procedure?
