"nerve root block injection"

About: Hull Royal Infirmary

I have had to have several of these injections over the last 3-4 years and absolutely dread them, yet each time the staff in the radiology day unit, have, without exception, been amazing. The atmosphere is always lovely and care and time always taken. My most recent injection was yesterday (29/01/14) and although the actual procedure is highly unpleasant the whole visit was made less stressful and actually quite humorous. We only ever hear bad things about our NHS staff so I want to complement everyone I came into contact with yesterday. Many thanks to them all-they have no idea how much they are appreciated and I would love for them to know.
