I had suspected relapsed Non Hodgkins Lymphoma and CT scan had shown mass in pelvic area. Went to have biopsy with ultrasound on 18th July - one of the hottest days of the year. The procedure itself was fine but I suffered a reaction afterwards which made my BP drop and caused me to be sick and pass out during recovery. The staff were very attentive and looked after me really well - even staying till 7:00 to make sure I was well enough to go home. The matron and one of the sisters were really lovely and I cannot praise them enough for their attention. The department itself is tiny with no air conditioning so they do a brilliant job under difficult circumstances. Thanks again
