"Colposcopy outpatients superb"

About: Royal Cornwall Hospital (Treliske)

Having had an abnormal routine smear result, I was referred to the colposcopy outpatients clinic. I was greeted for my first appointment on time and by an amazingly compassionate nurse colposcopy at who took time to explain absolutely everything to me, leaving no questions unanswered! I then had to return a few weeks later for treatment. Throughout both procedures, every step was explained to me and I was constantly asked if I was comfortable! Both procedures went well and I was made to feel the centre of all decisions made throughout what could have been an extremely degrading and undignified procedure! Thank you for the service you provided and thank you NHS for the screening process that is delivered, it proves it works!

Really good to read you were so pleased with your care. A great way to encourage others to take part in the cervical screening programme. Thank you.
