"New Victoria Hospital one of my best experience of healthcare in the UK"

About: New Victoria Hospital / Gynaecology

(as the patient),

Two of my recent smear tests weren't OK, so I received invitation to colposcopy. I was so worried as I had a baby just 6 months ago and it was like awakening from a nice dream to bad reality.

However my experiences with related healthcare are just great - I rescheduled appointment to my convenience easily, found H clinic easily (all bright, clean, clear instructions from staff).

Doctor was understanding, gentle yet quick, so before I could realise what's happening 'down there' it was done. Such a relief! Nurse spent some time with me talking about results and future care.

Overall on of my best experiences with healthcare in UK - clear, quick, person-focused care. Thanks.
