"Great Service"

About: Essex County Hospital

I would just like to praise your rapid diagnosis breast clinic, from visiting my G.P on the 27th November, I was called to attend an appointment on 5th December, my appointment was at 5.40pm, I was called in 10 minutes early to initially see the consultant, who was very nice, I then went through the process of mammogram and ultra sound, and returned to see the consultant for diagnosis all within an hour, with a successful conclusion. All the nursing staff, consultants and radiography staff we very nice, reassuring and supportive. Please pass on my thanks and gratitude for a very efficient clinic, a credit to the nhs and Essex County hospital. Thank you.
