National Survey on Outpatient Communication Experiences.

All women who are attending a gynaecology outpatient appointment (for any reason) in The Mater Misericordiae University Hospital, St James’s Hospital, St. Vincent’s Hospital, Galway University Hospital, Cork University hospital, Waterford University hospital and Belfast City Hospital are invited to participate in this National survey.

The findings will help to inform policies for doctor and patient communication at outpatient clinics.
