I am a part time GP partner at Wawn Street Surgery, where I have worked since 2000. I live locally and have brought my family up along this ever changing coastline. The beautiful area we live in does have some difficulties which can impact upon our patients' health, but there are also many local resources and a great sense of community. The practice is supportive and we have a great sense of teamwork. We are not perfect and aim to improve, therefore we welcome feedback to help us meet the needs of our patients.
I visited Dr Gill with my concerns around severe pelvic pain. I explained to Dr Gill that I was being referred for heart and abdominal scans which were coming back clear and that I did not feel I was being listened to. Dr Gill performed a pelvic examination and sent me for a CA125 blood test which has returned out of range. Dr Gill seen me immediately with the results and made a referral for ultrasound to detect possible ovarian cancer and explained every process to me.
Dr Gill is a professional and caring practitioner who has helped me deal with a difficult couple of years healthwise. She is a genuine, kind and empathetic person, a great listener and brilliant at explaining things. I find her approach to medicine refreshing as she is openminded and often promotes a more holistic approach to dealing with health matters.
Dr Gill is one of the best doctor in this practise. A genuinely caring and professional doctor. Easy to discuss health issues with with a great understanding and empathy of those issues.
I saw Dr Gill on 2nd March as an emergency appointment. I was virtually incoherent due to acute stress and depression. Despite her not knowing me she she gave me the greatest holistic care I have ever known. It is hard to describe what she did. She showed me great patience, listened so carefully to what I was 'blubbering' about and I felt she totally understood my immediate need. What touched me and was extraordinary about this care was how throughout the consultation she also administered sensitive physical care (peeling off plastic stickers from ECG I had had and bathing dried blood left over from a canula). The result of this was immediate confidence that I was understood and a feeling of safety that I needed in that moment.
I am always extremely pleased with the care and advice that I receive from Dr Caroline Gill,who, in my opinion is not only an exemplary doctor who has the best interests of her patients at heart,but is also one of the finest doctors with whom I have come in contact. Because she is in such demand, an early appointment can be somewhat difficult, however if your appointment is not of an urgent nature, the wait is well worth while.
