"I went to the EPADS clinic on ..."

About: York Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I went to the EPADS clinic on 24th Dec where it was discovered that my pregnancy had miscarried and I choose to have ERPC proceedure. This was a terrible day for us but we were treated with a great deal of sensitivity and care by all the staff but particularly the nursing team. We were put in a private room to wait and were kept informed of where we were in the surgery list and how long we would have to wait. Ulitmately the surgical team opened up an additional theatre which meant that we were able get the proceedure over, with sufficient recovery time and were able to go home that night and spend Christmas day at home. For which my husband and I were very grateful. Our whole experience was made much more bearable by the care of the all those who dealt with us.
