"Emergency coil implant"

About: South Tyrone Hospital / Gynaecology

(as a service user),

I travelled to Newry to have an emergency copper coil implant inserted and was quite nervous about the procedure as it is known to be painful and uncomfortable. The two nurses tending to me, Oonagh and Leslie, could not have been kinder or more reassuring throughout the entire process. They were happy to helpfully answer my questions even when I was repeating myself and they even offered me tea or coffee after procedure to make sure I was ok.  

The ladies and everyone at the clinic were friendly, caring and extremely approachable, I felt comfortable and there was no judgement at all. I can’t thank them enough.
