"Caring staff and clear information"

About: Lister Hospital

I had to visit the early pregnancy unit and was really impressed by how quickly we were seen, and particularly by the sensitivity and care we were shown when we had to have some bad news delivered. The staff there were so nice and made what was a distressing time as comfortable as possible. I also really appreciated how treatment options were clearly explained to me, and in the privacy of a quiet room. The wait time for a procedure would have beeen longer than I'd hoped (not the fault of the EPU) but I understand the reasons for this.Thanks very much to the staff.
