"Great service"

About: Victoria Hospital / Early Cancer Diagnosis Centre (ECDC)

(as a staff member posting for a patient/service user),

I was referred to the ECDC by GP. I was contacted by a cancer specialist nurse very quickly and we had a chat about my symptoms. I was then phoned with the date of CT scan on the same day and was given my results 2 days after my scan. Thankfully I don't have cancer and the prompt contact with my results completely relived how anxious I was feeling. From when I was contacted by the nurse I had had my scan and was given my results within 10 days which is excellent!   The staff were very nice, polite and helpful. Everything was explained fully to me and I can't think of any bad things to say about the service.
