"Excellent Gynae Radiographer"

About: Yeovil District Hospital

This is a delayed review that I have been meaning to write for a while. I wanted to say how happy I was with the way my pregnancy was handled by the Gynae team. I would like to thank in particular the radiographer. They picked up very quickly that my baby had Spina Bifida and during this, probably the worst/most scary time of my life, their kindness, empathy and professionalism is something I will remember for the rest of my life. A few years after this, I had bleeding which necessitated an emergency ultrasound scan. During my scan, there was a radiographer who couldn't find what was wrong. They called the radiographer and they immediately found the issue. I suddenly started to bleed very heavily during the scan and they were absolutely wonderful. They treated me with dignity and respect and did everything they could to reassure me and make me comfortable. They were there for the two hardest times of my life and I'd love you to pass this onto them as I can never thank them enough for all they have done for me.

YDH is so lucky to have these highly skilled professionals who genuinely care about their patients. Thank you.
