"Visit to colposcopy"

About: St Helens Hospital

I attended to colposcopy clinic recently for a check up following a smear test.

I was seen by 2 nurses who were absolutely lovely. The care assistant was also very nice and kept my mind off the examination by keeping me chatting.

The nurse who examined me was training and new to the department. They were very kind and caring and made me feel at ease during a very anxious time. As you can imagine it's not the most comfortable of places to be, but I felt very dignified. I was reassured on the day and immediately felt better. Fantastic clinic which was very clean and ran on time, which doesn't happen very much in the NHS. Well done.
