I've already posted a comment re having a coil replaced at Dewsbury Health Centre, but now I have been through the full process, I felt the need to warn others.
The initial appointment of having a coil replaced was fantastic but seriously let down by the rest of the process.
I originally visited at the beginning of Feb after being told I would need a consultation with a nurse. Working full time, I had to waste half a day's annual leave for a sit & wait appointment where the nurse went through the process which I was already aware of given I wanted it replacing. I could then book an appointment for the procedure to be done but the waiting time for this was 5 weeks! Good job I hadn't waited until the expiry date for my coil as I would have been well over the date!
Once the coil was fitted, the nurse told me I could book an appointment with reception to have it checked in 6 weeks. Went back out to be told it couldn't be booked & that it was another sit & wait job. Great!
Whilst checking the Locala website last weekend to check the clinic times for my 6 week check, I noticed that they now had bookable evening appointments & they had changed their clinic times. Luckily I managed to get an appointment after work for tonight but given they have merged with another service, I was asked to fill a form out so they had all my details & the nurse asked me a load of personal questions re my sex life. I found both these laughable given these should have been asked on my initial visit back in February & hopefully I don't have to return for 5 years.
Sorry guys, but apart from being looked after on my main visit, the rest of it was very poor.
