"Colonography made almost bearable"

About: North Tyneside General Hospital

Anything else?

A colonography is not the most pleasant or dignified procedure but the staff at the X-ray Department were so professional, caring and friendly that they made my examination almost acceptable. From the receptionist to the lady who disposed of my used gown, from the radiographers who perfomed the procedure to the person who removed my needles and not forgetting the coffee maker they all were obviously dedicated and a credit to Rake Lane. Thankyou Colin

It is so pleasing to know just what a difference this made for you. Feedback is extremely important to all of our staff and I know the team in the x-ray department will value your very kind words and reflections. I will ensure that they get to see them.
