"Some suggestions for women's outpatient appointment "

About: Warwick Hospital / Gynaecology

(as the patient),

Essentially good one-to-one care with the clinicians involved

Mostly positive for #hellomynameis and care episodes managed in a caring, compassionate way by individual clinicians

However it will take 3 separate outpatient appointments to do what essentially could have been achieved in one visit, if the system was set up effectively for the person receiving care. As it stands it seems un-coordinated, repetitive and inefficient. Surely this costs more too?

Also, patient information leaflet given was outdated - from June 2007 and not reviewed or updated since.
