I had suffered in silence for sometime, I had heard about Conifer House being a place where they test for HIV etc. I was expecting to be embarrassed, shamed and belittled.
I was met at reception with a cheerful good morning, at each encounter with reception staff they were smiling and pleasent. I began to relax. I filled out the form and was refered to another floor.
It took time to be seen but when I got to see the doctor. I was assessed, given appropriate tests, the results arrived back within 30 mins and the rest 7 days later. I am very sensitive to medication and they were aware of contra indications, they got a second opinion before writing a prescription. I was given futher appointment times until all my symptons had gone. They did not discharge me until I was given the all clear. The did not embarrass, shame or belittle me.
All staff are professional and have knowledge and skills much better than the general hospital gynecology dept. Without their help and support through treatment I would still be suffering silence. I now recommend their services to everyone who has a problem in their pants.
