i suffer from acute health anxiety, and so was very frightened during a recent health scare when i needed to attend and undergo diagnostic tests at the ladies healthcare/gynecology unit. The Vast majority of staff were patient and supportive showing empathy and compassion, especially the two wonderful nurses who were with me when i had my hysteroscopy. The consultant was charming and reassuring. Its so important that each patient is treated as an individual as everyones needs are different. As i say most of the staff were understanding, though the odd one may stop to consider how very frightening hospital visits can be for some. I appreciate how very busy the nursing staff are working in often very challenging situations , but they chose that profession and as it is a "caring" profession they should Never become blase, and if they do, then maybe its time to do something else.
