Dear Mr Hough

Thank you for your follow-up request regarding Hysteroscopy in
out-patients and your phone message requesting an 'escalation'.
 

I have reviewed your questions and the Integrated Care Division has
provided me with a further response and details.  I am satisfied that in
accordance with the Act they have they have provided you with information
held by the Trust in relation to its generic approach to out-patient
hysteroscopy.  For clarity I have pasted both of your requests and the
trust’s responses below.
 

I am concerned that using FOI in this respect may not be the best route to
respond to your concerns, which I presume are in relation to an episode of
patient care within our hospital?  If you are unhappy with advice, care,
treatment and outcomes provided to a relative, the more appropriate access
point would not be FOI, but would be to our complaints and assistance
services.  You are welcome to contact them via email: [email address] or
by telephone to 01246 512640.  You must have the patient’s consent to act
on their behalf.
 

Through the complaint process the trust would welcome the opportunity to
discuss an individual’s experiences and outcomes.  FOI can only provide
you with factual information and detail, rather than specific details
about an individual’s care.  Through the complaints process you would also
be able to arrange to speak directly with a clinician or ask to have the
episode of care reviewed.

I hope that is a helpful reflection.  Should you remain dissatisfied with
the Trust’s handling of your FOI request and my review you are welcome to
lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office.  The details
and on-line form can be found here: https://ico.org.uk/make-a-complaint/

Request made April 8 2019 (each response has been reviewed and is posted
under each question)

Why does your trust not use this leaflet
https://www.rcog.org.uk/en/patients/pati...
I am satisfied that the Integrated Care Division at Chesterfield Royal
Hospital has its own leaflet based on RCOG.

Why does your leaflet not mention the rick of sever pain (sic)
The division confirmed that the current leaflet does mention pain and is
on our intranet for use. 
https://www.chesterfieldroyal.nhs.uk/our...
On review of this question we could have been more specific in response in
terms of saying that most people do not experience severe pain.  If this
was the experience of the patient you are representing raising the issue
through the complaints services may be more effective.

Is your trust familiar with the Montgomery court case witch means you are
braking (sic) the law by not giving informed consent?
I am satisfied that the information provided by the division is correct
and that processes for hysteroscopy consent are informed and compliant
with Montgomery.

Why have resent patients not bean told verbally of there (sic) pain relief
option such as GA under the NHS choices guidelines
I am satisfied that clinicians provide patients with verbal advice
regarding pain relief options.

What is your OPH scope size and method ie do you use the vagiscopic method
The division provided information confirming it uses 3mm scopes and the
vaginoscopy method is used when appropriate.
 

Request made May 2  2019 (each response has been reviewed and is posted
under each question)

i am deeply concerned to the incorrect information given to me you do not
do the vigascopic method because their is no one capable or willing to do
it . The current leaflet is not based on the RCOG one does NOT MENTION
severer pain and is not on YOUR intranet for use. but sends me to the RSOG
web site green top guidelines 59 i asked WHY you do not USE the RCOG
leaflet WHY .you DO NOT OFFER GA VERBALLY but offer local if i do not
recessive correct answer in 20 day i will report this to the IOC (sic)

I can confirm that the Trust does have clinicians with expertise in the
vaginoscopy method of hysteroscopy.  The Trust’s approach for this
examination is consistent with the best practice guidelines indicated by
the RCOG.  As per the response provided to you in April the division’s
clinicians talk to patients about the option of general anaesthetic as
part of the consent process.
At this point in time consultants are reviewing our information sources
for hysteroscopy and a patient leaflet will be produced by the Trust to
support information sharing and improvement.
