"Burton Hospital to update website"

About: Queen's Hospital, Burton Upon Trent / Gynaecology

(as the patient),

I was given an appointment at Burton with a gynaecologist and wanted to know whether this was a male or female doctor as it was not clear from their name. I would not mind either way but just wanted to be prepared. As I have used the website before to look up other doctors I was surprised to see it had not been updated since 2010.

I find the website very informative and often many of the doctors have a profile where by you can see their picture and it also tells you their qualifications and medical background. I think this is a wonderful source of information and is very reassuring to patients, I know my family and friends have used this too.

Perhaps this specific doctor is new, but I would just like to ask if it could be kept up-to-date as me and others find it very useful.

Other than that I chose to come to Burton hospital as I am always happy with the way I have been treated and the doctors I have met before have always been very good.

Thank you for your kind words and for sharing your experience at the hospital. The development of the website is an ongoing project and we fully appreciate the need to keep the information on the website up to date and easy to access.

Although we endeavour to ensure that all information is up to date there are occasions when new information is not transferred as soon as we would like.
