"Excellent staff for colposcopy"

About: Arrowe Park Hospital / Gynaecology

(as the patient),

I had read several horror stories on the internet of what to expect when having a colposcopy so had some reluctance in attending for the appointment. However the service I received was excellent.

The nurse Gill taking the colposcopy listened to what I had to say and talked me through the whole procedure which was not as painful as I had expected from the internet stories. Gill also took great pains to reassure me as to what was happening.

I would encourage anyone who needs to go for a colposcopy for whatever reason to go and not be frightened or worried as the whole experience was not daunting at all and I have only praise for all the staff who made me feel welcome and relaxed.
