"EGU and Gynae team"

About: Whipps Cross University Hospital

I would like to express my thanks to all of the staff in Whipps EGU and to the Gynae team.

Sadly this month I had an ectopic pregnancy. There was an uncertain time before this was diagnosed and the staff in EGU were so kind and explained everything very clearly while we waited for bloods/further scans.

I was devastated when my ectopic pregnancy was diagnosed and the Dr was so comforting. I cannot thank them enough. They got me into surgery very quickly and I am now recovering well.

Every single staff member I encountered from the nurses on Rowan ward to the team in theatres treated me with respect and compassion. I cannot express how grateful I am. It made, what was an awful ordeal, more bearable.

We are very sad to read of your experience. This must have been a very upsetting time for you. It is great to hear that all of the staff including the nurses, doctors and the team in EGU all cared for you with respect and compassion at what is such a difficult time.

We have shared your kind words with both of the teams as they will be grateful to hear them.
