"Respectful and Thorough"

About: Macclesfield District General Hospital

My teenage son was booked in for a scan in an intimate area. He was given the option of a male chaperone or myself to be with him. The sonographer also arranged for a male doctor to do the scan rather than herself. The whole experience was made as easy as possible for my son who was, quite understandable a little embarrassed and shy. I really cannot praise the team enough - particularly as the results were a perfect outcome - nothing wrong!

Response from Macclesfield District General Hospital

Thank you for taking the time to post your comments on the NHS Choices website. I was delighted to read that your son was treated in such a thoughtful, caring and dignified way during what was obviously a rather embarrassing time for him, I have passed your comments on to the scan department as they are such a boost to staff morale.
