"Treated with dignity and respect"

About: Pontefract General Infirmary

Had an ultrasound scan yesterday, 13 weeks pregnant and I just want to say how pleased I was with the sonographer. I'm quite a large lady and requested downs screening for my baby which was a little awkward for the sonographer to get straight in and get the correct measurements. It did take a while and 40 mins later she got them. I just want to thank her for treating me with dignity and respect that everyone deserves regardless of their size. She had so much patience and was so nice. Worded everything in the correct manner and was just simply polite. The nhs needs more staff like this. Very pleasant and happy experience, thankyou pontefract hospital :)
