"Sexual health screening"

About: Peterborough City Hospital / Sexual health clinic

(as the patient),

I've never had a full sexual health screening before, so was absolutely terrified.

The receptionist, the nurses, the healthcare assistant: they all worked to put me at ease. My appointment was even split so that I could go to the toilet rather than sit in discomfort.

Everything was explained, I did not feel patronized, just nervous.
