"Extent colposcopy department"

About: The Royal Victoria Infirmary

I was really impressed with the colposcopy department at the RVI- all the staff were very friendly and professional. The consultant explained everything to me and involved me fully in the decisions, the doctor showed great empathy and they and all the clinical and non clinical staff made me feel at ease and in safe hands. The team is very approachable and easy to contact- I had emailed a question to them following my appointment and the colposcopy sister phoned back straight away the next day and again was so kind and really put my mind at ease about everything. Overall a fabulous department. Thank you very much.
