"Excellent gynaecology department"

About: Royal Hallamshire Hospital

What I liked

i was very apprehensive about visiting the Jessp wing having previously visited another gynae department in the county which was not a pleasant experience. However the nursing and the consultant were all excellent and very supportive. The proceedure was clearly explained and nurse was there to hold my hand throughout. Whilst the result of the examination and test mean I will need further proceedures I have total faith in the department and the care they give. An excellent team making a scary experience as easy a possible.

What could be improved

Pharmacy could not dispense my prescription for 1 hr as the pharmacist was out did mean that I was waiting around for a long time as I could not really walk across to the main building pharmacy.

Parking could be better again limited mobility makes it a long walk from the main carpark.
