"The quality of treatment is excellent, the care is..."

About: John Radcliffe Hospital

I was treated in Urgent Gyne for suspected miscarriage on several occasion and the quality of the treatment I was given was excellent. However the care and respect for me as a patient was lacking. I was treated by a trainee on each of my 5 visit, (a different one each time) and the trainees were so focused on the teaching they were being given they failed to make any contact with me. I was being scanned internally and the trainee Dr turned to her teacher and said, I can't get a picture of the ovary "the leg is in the way", she was not corrected. Eye contact is rare, and explanations from the Trainees are rushed and garbled, the teacher did not intervene or explain after.
