"Breast Screening"

About: University Hospital (Coventry)

I was recently referred by my GP to see a Breast surgeon. My appointment arrived promptly and I was offered a choice of appointment times. On the morning of the appointment, which ran to time, I saw a female consultant who was very re assuring but referred me to the breast screening department. In the space of half and hour I was given a mamagramme and an ultra sound test. The results were given to me almost immediately. Thankfully every thing was clear and what had started out as a very stressful morning ended positively. A huge thank you to all the staff for running such a seamless service.
