Following a mammogram taken under the breast screening programme, I was recalled to the Breast Centre for further tests. Understandably, I was obviously very nervous, anxious and worried. I checked in at reception and didn't have to wait long before I was called for a mammogram by the radiographer, who explained the reason for my recall and was very gentle and caring. I then had another short wait before I was given an ultrasound. At all times, everything was explained and the utmost was done to try and put me at ease. My appointment lasted less than half an hour. I cannot praise the staff enough for the kindness, consideration, understanding and professionalism that they gave, on what could have been a very hard for me. Thank you so much.
