"Early Pregnancy Unit"

About: Derriford Hospital

I have had two very good experiences of the Early Pregnancy Unit. The first being in July 2015 when I unfortunately experienced a miscarriage. I was referred to the unit where they booked me in for a scan to confirm the outcome of this. I was seen mainly by a Staff Nurse who was extremely compassionate and put me at ease at a very difficult time. The second experience was on the 11th December 15', I was referred by my GP for a scan due to bleeding. Due to my previous experience back in July I was very nervous but the nurse who assessed and stayed with us throughout the whole process was lovely and again made me feel a lot more at ease as was the Nurse Sonographer. Luckily this time had a much more positive outcome and my mind was put at rest that everything was progressing as it should! I just wanted to give my feedback as I have been very impressed by the service on both occasions and don't feel that the staff at Derriford are given as much credit as they deserve. Thank you Early Pregnancy Unit!
