"Breast Screening Department"

About: Queen Elizabeth Hospital (Gateshead)

I attended the breast screening department on Tuesday 27 August. The staff were excellent they were very sympathetic and tried to put my mind at ease at a very worrying time. They were professional yet very caring and compassionate. Thank you once again I had several procedures within a very short time and had my results within 20 minutes. Well done a credit to the nhs
