"A&E visit and subsequent Outpatients appt and MRI..."

About: Lister Hospital

I've taken a while to write this - and for that I apologise. After a rather long and ongoing problem with my knee, a couple of months ago - it finally 'went'. I visited A&E where the doctor and her team were outstanding - whilst rushed off their feet - not once did I feel ignored. The doctor was considerate and empathetic throughout as were her nurses. I then visited the outpatients dept to be treated in a kind, supportive manner by the surgeon. My MRI referral was sent through quickly and on a Saturday - and was carried out by kind and supportive staff. I'm back again on Tuesday this week for the MRI results and hopefully a speedy solution to the problem they (hopefully) found! I was the lady who arrived in A&E just before Christmas to give the staff a box of biscuits to say thank you. I continue to have every faith in Lister - and hope that this continues as my treatment progresses. THank you to all the staff so far, good work Lister!
