Wonderful staff and very clean hospital

Wonderful staff and very clean. Parking easy, prompt start of appointment and lovely consultant. I wish all hospitals were like this.

Great service

I booked an appointment online for when I had another appointment. It wasn't easy to find the booking link on my phone but lots of choice when you do. I was called straight in, so didn't even have to sit in the waiting room, which was quite busy. I went in for a blood test and was very nervous. It was in a single room. The nurse was really lovely and helpful. She chatted to me and did the test really quickly.

Good experience

I went for an ultrasound scan. All the staff were very nice and polite. The nurse introduced herself and her colleague. She explained everything really well. The waiting area and treatment room were very clean. It was also easy to park. It was a good experience.

Great department

November 24, 2021
I was referred to Ophthalmology by my GP and chose to go to St. Helens. I only had to wait about 4 weeks and had a choice of dates and times. Masks and hand gel were being given out on entering the hospital and my temperature was taken before entering the department. The staff in this department are very friendly and caring, from the Receptionist to the Consultant.
The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because I would have liked more time to talk to the consultant. He seemed rushed and was already examining me when asking me questions. I was given new prescriptions on the day and waited about 30 minutes in the onsite pharmacy, I needed to call the clinic again later in the week and again they were very friendly and caring.

Very thorough safe and professional

On arrival at the hospital everywhere was spotlessly clean on entering the building all staff and patients were wearing masks and socially distancing . I went to the Yellow Zone of the hospital a nurse took my temperature and was moved to another zone which was clean and chairs were spaced to promote social distancing. Seats were clearly marked so patients waiting were distanced from each other .I was called into the clinic within 20 minutes on entering the room for my consultation. The consultant introduced herself and asked me a series of questions and examined me , following my examination she advised I would have a scan and following the scan a number of options will be given to me to proceed with my treatment .
My experience overall was excellent the staff and consultant were professional and helpful and I feel the measures in place to protect patients from COVID 19 during hospital appointments were excellent , I would definitely recommend the clinic and hospital .

Staff are lovely

I was due to go for a bowel screening just as lockdown began, so this was cancelled. As soon as possible the hospital got back in touch and booked me in. They rang me and had a long chat to explain what would happen and allow me to ask any questions I had. When I went for my appointment the hospital was spotless and everyone was wearing masks. The staff were really lovely and put me at my ease, chatting to me. I was given my result right away and they even called me a few days later to check I was ok, even though it was good news. My husband had to wait in the car, due to Covid-19 but he was allowed to come in to get me after my appointment. I cannot fault this hospital at all. Very caring staff.

Telephone appointment

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
July 16, 2020
My appointment was changed to a telephone consultation due to Covid-19. I was sent a letter to explain this and was called at a set time by a surgeon. I preferred having my appointment over the phone as it was easier for me and I didn't need to be examined so it makes complete sense.

The surgeon was friendly and explained everything well. I had time to ask questions. I was told when to expect to hear from the hospital again and can go in to the hospital next time.

Called to let me know appointment cancelled

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

I received a phone call from the hospital to let me know my appointment was cancelled. She explained that this was due to the Coronavirus outbreak. I though it was good they took the time to individually call each patient at this especially busy time. They are rearranging for 12 weeks time.

The Dermatology clinic in St Helens is fab

March 26, 2020
The Dermatology clinic in St Helens is fantastic! I genuinely don’t know what I’d do without them! Dr Hannabashara is new there, focusing on root cause as opposed to a quick fix which I’m finding refreshing and enlightening to say the least! Gail and the other derm nurses are lovely and extremely tentative and caring! I feel for them all with the current virus crisis! They are doing fantastic work under very difficult conditions
