Bone biopsy procedure carried out by Jane, assisted by Alix and Lauren. Taken on time and procedure explained well. Jane carried out the procedure and was very reassuring as it progressed. I experienced a little discomfort when the local anaesthetic was administered but very little sensation thereafter. Ample time was allowed after the procedure for a short rest along with a cup of coffee. All in all the procedure was less traumatic than expected largely due to the extremely pleasant staff involved.
