About: University Hospital Of Hartlepool

(as the patient),

What I liked

-minimal wait to be seen by doctor

-given very quick appointment for us scan

What could be improved

-staff nurse could have been present.

-being examined by doctor without having to request it

-sooner follow up apointment

Anything else?

I attended gynae outpatients via choose and book. i was spoken down to by the doctor and felt as though i was wasting their time. They took minimal medical history and didn't even ask me why i was there. i was given no explanation as to what was happening . i am no further forward and have to return in march- i am not looking forward to this and am thinking about asking to see another doctor
