"Visits to x-ray department far better than at..."
Posted via NHS Choices
I have a back problem and in the last few months I have had x-rays of my back, and more recently a MRI. Having had my last MRI in a local private hospital in Buckhurst Hill where the staff were not very pleasant, I was due to have another MRI and asked to be sent to St Margaret's. The staff were really friendly and they joked that at the private hospital I probably had music through my headphones (which was true) but at St Margaret's all they have are ear defenders. I am not one of those patients who feel stressed by a MRI, but if I was, the music might have relaxed me. Anyway, the staff did not rush me even though I was the last appointment of the day.
