I needed to have a hysteroscopy, the two nurses (Margaret & Sheila) were excelent doing their best to reassure me, talk through what was going to happen. Margaret gave me further information on the possible treatment options.
I would like to raise the point that patients are required to remove most of their clothing and put on a hospital gown which ties at the back (which Margaret had to help me tie). Whilst the nurses did their best to shield me from the patients in the waiting area (both male and female), I had to walk across the corridor into the examination room and back to the same room when my examination was completed. I find this quite unacceptable that some form of screen is not available.
