"Great service from the NHS all round!"
Posted by Lsc (as ),
Found a lump on my breast. Panicked - I am 50 and missed my mammogram because of Covid. Phoned my GP surgery. Had a call back from my GP who told me to pop round to the surgery in 5 minutes. She examined me then put me forward for an “urgent suspected cancer” referral. I got a letter 4 days later with an appointment for the breast clinic. This wasn’t for another week when I would be in training in London for my new job. I rang reception and spoke to Carolyn. She was so kind and understanding. She managed to organise another appointment very quickly. The appointment itself was slick. My doctor was a Ms McDonald who was very thorough. Examined, mammogram, ultra sound and consultation. All within less than 2 hours. Luckily everything was fine and the lump was not suspicious. I breathed a very big sigh of relief! I can’t thank everyone enough for this fantastic service!
