"colposcopy department and staff A+"

About: Medway Maritime Hospital / Gynaecology

I had a colposcopy appointment today (08/08/19) and to say I was anxious was a understatement, I was so scared and didn't know what to expect.

My appointment was on time so I didn't have to wait long and the doctor was so good with me along with the two nurses in the room, they were all so kind and understanding and held my hand when needed.

Constantly reassuring me and letting me know how good I was doing. I needed treatment which I had done there and then and it was over with very quickly, I can't say it was a pleasant experience but the staff made it so much easier for me. I would like to thank the doctor again and the two nurses for being so nice to me.

You really do a great job there!
