"Breast Screening Unit astonishingly good"

About: Poole General Hospital

Anything else?

I have just returned today, after attending a further assessment for breast cancer screening. This included additional mammograms, ultrasound and biopsies at the unit. I cannot rate this service highly enough. The staff are just wonderful, reassuring, funny and kind and make a difficult experience seamless and painless. To attend a service which is in effect a one stop shop for assessment is very impressive. I feel very fortunate that we have such a service in our community. Thanks to all who take part, amazing service.
